AWO Elects Stegbauer Chairman Of Board
Frank T. Stegbauer, executive vice president of Southern Towing Company, Memphis, Tenn., and Caruthersville, Mo., was elected chairman of the board of The American Waterways Operators, Inc. at the Association's recent annual meeting held in Washington, D.C.
James R. Smith was elected to his fifth consecutive term as president of AWO, and William Cleary was elected to his 22nd annual term as secretary-treasurer at the two-day meeting which attracted the largest attendance in the Association's 33-year history.
Mr. Stegbauer succeeds John D. Geary, president of Midland Enterprises of Cincinnati, Ohio, after having served as regional vice chairman and chairman of the Coast Guard Liaison Committee.
The barge line executive joined Southern Towing in 1960, after serving as executive vice president in charge of operations with Warner and Tamble of Memphis, where he had been employed since 1945. Prior to World War II, Mr.
Stegbauer worked on riverboats as a fireman and deckhand, and during the war he served with the U.S. Eighth Air Force in England as a combat navigator after graduating from the Air Force Aerial Navigation School in 1943.
Taking over as chairman of the board, Mr. Stegbauer said: "The barge and towing industry faces many vitally important issues which could have a tremendous effect on the entire nation. With the help of the AWO membership, I plan to continue the fine leadership Jack Geary supplied in representing the nation's water transportation industry." Members to serve on the board's Executive Committee during the coming year are: Mr. Stegbauer, board chairman, Mr. Smith, AWO president, the six Regional vice chairmen, Peter Fanchi Jr., Region 1; Robert E. Scatterday, Region 2; O.R. Menton, Region 3; William R. Saul, Region 4; Francis B. Bushey, Region 5; Lester C. Bedient, Region 6. Mr.
Geary, outgoing board chairman, was appointed, and Neville Stone was reappointed. Edward Renshaw automatically joins the committee, representing the shipyard members as a result of a new bylaw amendment.
