Stevens Appoints New President

The Board of Directors of Stevens Towing Co., Inc., elected W. Johnson Stevens, III, to serve as the new president of the company, succeeding his father, William J. “Bill” Stevens, Jr.   Bill will serve as chairman of the board and as chief executive officer.  The new posts reflect a planned leadership transition for the younger Stevens, son of the former president, to become the fourth generation of the Stevens family to head Stevens Towing.  Johnson joined the company in 2007 and has served in a broad range of operations and management positions there over the years.

The board also appointed an executive committee charged with managing day-to-day operations of the company.  Johnson Stevens will lead the executive committee, serving with two outside directors, Mike Deignan and Jack Hoey.

Gordon Locatis, Stevens’ long-time Vice President and general manager, will transition to a new role focusing on business development. Benjamin “Bos” Smith will continue as Vice President, Sales and Operations.
