In December 2016, AMS celebrated the outstanding career of Dan Beverly, who retired after 30 years of loyal and dedicated service to AMS. Mr. Beverly is a beloved member of the AMS family, and his exceptional contributions over his three-decade career at AMS are immeasurable.
Mr. Beverly worked for AMS from 1987 to 2016 and is solely responsible for much of the company’s growth and success since Dr. Hashemian co-founded the company in 1977. Over his long and tremendous career, he has served the company in numerous positions, including Chief Technical Officer, Quality Assurance Manager, Chief Engineer, and Technical Assistant to the President.
Mr. Beverly has performed I&C testing and measurements for AMS in over 100 nuclear plants and other facilities in the U.S. and Europe. He has played a significant role in all of the company’s technical developments in the areas of cable condition monitoring, performance testing of process instrumentation in nuclear power plants, quality assurance, and related efforts.
An expert in electronic test equipment hardware development, Mr. Beverly played a vital role in the design and development of several AMS diagnostic test systems produced for the nuclear industry. He is highly experienced in testing and troubleshooting electrical cables, pressure transmitter static and dynamic performance evaluation, and reactor diagnostics (including core barrel and reactor internal vibration analysis). His experience also extends to rod position indication and rod control systems of nuclear power plants and he holds a patent in that area. He has authored or co-authored numerous technical publications including reports for the Nuclear Maintenance Assistance Center (NMAC) of EPRI and NUREG/CR reports for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Mr. Beverly continues to work as a consultant for AMS in the role of Advising Manager Emeritus. He was honored and celebrated at the annual AMS Christmas Party held on December 17, 2016, at The Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm in Knoxville, Tennessee.
