Fred K. Y. Lo was Director of the NRAO from September, 2002 until May of 2012. The successful construction phase of the international ALMA project was the primary focus of his directorship, and he recruited scientists for the North American ALMA Science Center in Charlottesville, Virginia. During his directorship, the anticipated major upgrade to the Very Large Array was completed, including its re-dedication as the Karl G. Jansky VLA. The Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) got a new correlator and receivers, and the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) came into its own.
