Dr. Harold Chadsey, PhD, Retired Scientist, was recently selected as Top Lifetime Scientist of the Year for 2021 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for his outstanding leadership and commitment to the industry.

While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, other affiliations and contributions to their communities. All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual awards gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.


With over 35 years of professional experience as a talented and well-known scientist, Dr. Chadsey has certainly proven himself as an accomplished engineer and an expert of physics. He can best be described as a dynamic, results-driven leader, who has demonstrated success throughout his entire career. Dr. Chadsey is the author of the dissertation, “An Automated Quality Control System for Cesium Beam Frequency Standards”.

Before beginning his professional career, Dr. Chadsey earned his Bachelor of Science from Centenary College in 1982. While working full-time, he continued his studies and obtained his Master of Science in 1995 from American University. In 2001, Dr. Chadsey received his Doctor of Philosophy from Kennedy-Western University which later became Warren National University. Dr. Chadsey earned his Project Management Master’s Certificate from the George Washington University in 2012 and became a Certified Project Management Professional (PMP).  In retirement, he has continued his education and community service by earning his National Registry Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) certification and working at his local Volunteer Fire Department.

Dr. Chadsey has an impressive repertoire of positions including his 19 years of service (1985-2004) with the US Naval Observatory and service to the U.S. Coast Guard as a timing and clock adviser. His efforts and projects also involved the studies of atomic frequency standards, GPS timing, and precise time and time interval issues. In 1997 he served as the President of the Northern Virginia Radio Control club.  He was involved with the Project Management Institute, El Karubah Shriners, and judging local and regional science fairs. Additionally, Dr. Chadsey excelled as a Physicist for 12 years (2004-2016) for the U.S. Department of the Navy and as a contractor to the U.S. Department of Defense from 2017-2020.

Throughout his illustrious career, Dr. Chadsey has received awards, accolades, and has been recognized worldwide for his outstanding leadership and commitment to the industry. This year he is being considered for a Front Cover feature and 2-page article in TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine and also for the Lifetime Achievement Award given by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP). The Naval District of Washington honored Dr. Chadsey with the Safety Representative Award in 2002 and Dr. Chadsey was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Federal Service Award in 2016. He has also been featured in a number of Who’s Who professional organizations.

The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Dr. Chadsey for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. He is brilliant at what he does and has dedicated so much of his expertise to his industry. With all he has accomplished we felt he would make an amazing asset to our organization. We are looking forward to meeting him and celebrating his success with him at the gala.”

Looking back, Dr. Chadsey attributes his success to his perseverance, his passion for physics and mentors with whom he has had the honor of working alongside. When not working, he enjoys building and flying remote control airplanes, motorcycle riding, and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Chadsey hopes to encourage others to choose a career related to science and engineering.  He will continue providing his expertise any way he can to the industry.
