Charles Visconti, Chairman of the Webb Institute Board of Trustees, announced that Rear Admiral Robert C. Olsen, Jr., the current Superintendent of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., was selected to succeed Ronald K. Kiss on July 1, 2005 as President of Webb Institute.

Admiral Olsen, born in Brooklyn, grew up in New London, where he graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy in 1969. He later earned an M.S. in Administration from the U.S. Naval Post Graduate School in Monterrey, Ca., and an M.S. in National Security and Strategic Studies form the Naval War College.

During his 34 years of service in the United States Coast Guard, Admiral Olsen served as Commanding Officer of four Coast Guard cutters and was Director of Personnel Management for the Coast Guard immediately before becoming Superintendent.

Mr. Kiss, the first Webb graduate to serve as president of the school, has served as Webb’s President since July 1999. He will return to the Washington, D.C. area where he will resume his consulting practice.
