"Carl will be a tremendous asset to our organiza- tion," said Jack Kelly, director of the NWS. "He has excellent skills in managing computational systems and in networking them together, and will bring strong leadership to an already highly skilled team." Staton joins the NWS from a sister agency, the Na- tional Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service's (NESDIS) Office of Satellite Data Process- ing and Distribution, responsible for processing, dis- r \ tributing, and archiving data from NOAA and non-NOAA polar and geostationary satellites. Prior to his work at NESDIS, which began in 1979 as a com- puter specialist, Staton worked with General Electric and Singer-Link, Inc., in programming and systems integration.
