Title: Senior Licensed Reactor Operator (Retired)
Company: Exelon Nuclear
Location: Davenport, Iowa, United States

Eric R. Marks, a retired senior licensed nuclear reactor operator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of nuclear engineering.

Mr. Marks enjoyed a fulfilling career in nuclear engineering that spanned more than three decades, culminating in his role as a senior licensed reactor operator at the Exelon Corporation until 2021. Throughout the course of his employment with the company, he was responsible for overseeing all operations at the nuclear plant he was assigned to, including spinning up the reactor and training new hires. Proud to have distinguished himself as one of only 5,000 senior licensed nuclear reactor operators in the world, Mr. Marks is likewise a 13-year submarine veteran of the United States Navy, having served as an engineering officer of the watch throughout the course of his duties. During this time, he was notably bestowed with several accolades for his performance, including recognition as Sailor of the Year and an Achievement Medal, among other awards. 

In accounting for his success, Mr. Marks largely credits the influence of his father – a brilliant mathematician who instilled within the younger man a diligent work ethic and a penchant for hands-on labor. Among his most cherished accomplishments, Mr. Marks is gratified to have passed on his knowledge to many specialists who sought to follow his example and pursue careers of their own in the field of nuclear engineering. Looking toward the future, he aspires to enjoy his retirement and spend more time with his family – and to indulge in more travel, especially to such locales as the Caribbean Sea.
