April 03, 2006

WASHINGTON-The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) today announced the appointment of William F. Condron Jr., as Director of the PBGC's Appeals Division.

Condron comes to the PBGC after a distinguished career in the Army Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps. He has held senior-level positions at the Pentagon and major installations worldwide. While assigned at the Pentagon, Colonel Condron served as Chief of the Army's Criminal Law Division, where he advised the Army's most senior uniformed and civilian leaders on numerous high-profile criminal cases and policy issues. Most recently, he served as Director of Military Justice Transformation, a business process reengineering project which successfully designed and deployed a web-based software program to manage the Army's criminal law prosecutions and other adverse administrative actions.

"Bill Condron is a top-flight legal professional with skills honed by nearly two decades in the challenging arena of military justice," said Executive Director Bradley Belt. "I look forward to working with him to ensure that PBGC pension beneficiaries receive fair and timely consideration of their benefit appeals."

Condon earned a bachelor of science at the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., and a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law. He also achieved a LL.M. in military law at the JAG school in Charlottesville, Va. He is an active member of the Virginia State Bar.

The PBGC is a federal corporation created under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. It currently guarantees payment of basic pension benefits earned by 44 million American workers and retirees participating in over 30,000 private-sector defined benefit pension plans. The agency receives no funds from general tax revenues. Operations are financed largely by insurance premiums paid by companies that sponsor pension plans and by investment returns.
