Michael T. Woo, 51, business executive

Michael T. Woo, a vice president at Bethesda-based global energy company USEC Inc., died Jan. 18 at Inova Fairfax Hospital from injuries sustained in a Dec. 24 automobile accident. He was 51.

Mr. Woo received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley. He held two master’s degrees from the University of Chicago — in public policy with an emphasis on resource economics and in physical chemistry.

Before joining USEC, Mr. Woo was a professional staff member for the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the U.S. House of Representatives. From 1977 to 1994, he was one of the principal staffers working on energy legislation for the committee. He also worked on legislation dealing with the sale of Conrail and the enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.

At USEC, which supplies enriched uranium fuel for commercial nuclear power plants, Mr. Woo was vice president of strategic development. His responsibilities included coordinating strategic initiatives and overseeing the company’s power resources group.

Mr. Woo previously served as director of the power resources group, where he was responsible for negotiating USEC’s power contracts and managing its power operations. He joined USEC in December 1994 as manager of financial strategic programs in the finance department, where he played a key role in the privatization of the company.

He is survived by his wife, Linda K. Woo; and two sons, Thomas Kelvin Woo and David James Woo.

The family requests that memorial donations be made in Mr. Woo’s name to the Chauncellor Foundation, the Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Freedom Alliance or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
