Other responsibilities included the decommissioning of several test reactors, one power reactor, and over 1,000 nuclear production and ancillary facilities for commercial and government clients. He also managed multi-disciplinary teams responsible for the termination of five Nuclear Regulatory Commission licenses.

During his time at Chicago Bridge and Iron (CB&I), Trice served as the president of both the power division, and the facilities and plant services division. In this capacity, he managed approximately 70 offices worldwide with operations spanning four continents, including North and South America, Europe and Asia. At its peak, his enterprise had approximately 200 plants under contract, which included about 40% of the U.S. nuclear operating fleet and another 150 petrochemical plants, 17,000 employees and a backlog of roughly $10B with annual revenues of $3.5B. 

Trice also served as executive vice president of Bruce Power, a major utility in Canada, which operates eight nuclear reactors and generates approximately 6.4 GW of power. In this capacity, he had the overall responsibility for all of Bruce Power’s capital programs, as well as the refurbishment of six reactors. The planned budget for this capital program was approximately $14B CAD.

In addition, Trice served in the U.S. Navy for six years as an officer on a nuclear submarine and held several top-secret and Department of Energy Q clearances. 

Trice has also served on the boards of multiple entities, restructured and turned around troubled assets, oversaw mergers and acquisitions as well as divestiture of companies.
