(Press Release)
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
The Ports of Indiana has named Scott Stewart as port director for the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville. A native of nearby New Albany, Ind., Stewart spent 24 years in positions of increasing responsibility with the Procter & Gamble Company before retiring in 2008 and moving back to Indiana. Upon his return, he served as a senior policy director for Governor Mitch Daniels and most recently as Director of Strategy for the Indiana Department of Transportation on the Ohio River Bridges project.
"We're very excited to have someone of Scott's caliber join our team," said Rich Cooper, CEO for the Ports of Indiana. "Scott's management and leadership roles with one of the world's top corporations, coupled with his experiences in the transportation sector with the state of Indiana, will allow him to connect immediately with port customers and business prospects in our industry. He clearly understands the win-win outcomes of public-private partnerships which define our strategy for growing business and Indiana's economy."
During his career with Procter & Gamble, Stewart held leadership positions at company headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, and internationally in Geneva, Switzerland, and Brussels, Belgium. He served as an associate director and a group manager where he developed strategies and partnerships that leveraged P&G brands to increase sales and market share.
"This is a great opportunity for me to come back home and play a role in developing new business opportunities for our region and state," Stewart said. "The Ports of Indiana is recognized as one of the premier inland port systems in the country. The multi-modal transportation assets at our port in Jeffersonville have us well positioned to attract new cargoes and industries to southern Indiana. I look forward to working with port customers and the local community to discuss how the port can grow and attract new investments to this region."
Stewart is a graduate of Indiana University Southeast with a degree in Business Economics & Public Policy.
The Ports of Indiana is a statewide port authority that operates a system of three ports on the Ohio River and Lake Michigan. Located in Mount Vernon, Burns Harbor and Jeffersonville, Indiana's three ports handle more than $1.5 billion in cargo shipments per year.
