Beard has been acting associate director since June 2007. He replaced Michael Mallory, who was promoted to principal associate director for operations at the lab.
The stockpile manufacturing and support directorate works on technology and sciences to maintain the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile.
That includes the controversial production of replacement nuclear weapons cores, called pits.
