Stewart began his career in 1979 with Morland Petroleum, a downstream petroleum company established by his father Reginald Morland. This hands on experience across all facets of the petroleum industry provided Stewart with the necessary experience to establish his own fuel distribution company in 1990.
In 1996 Stewart embarked on a joint exploration petroleum project with IOR which led to the discovery of the Inland Oil Field PL98 in 1996 – one of the largest onshore oil fields in Australia at that time. Stewart went on to become a shareholder at IOR in 2004, and in 2013 became the majority owner of the company along with Ross Mackenzie.
As the proactive and innovative leader of the sales and marketing efforts within the company, Stewart has proudly seen the steady growth of IOR to over 90 talented staff; and the development of a strong brand synonymous with innovation, authenticity and exceptional customer service.
Through the efforts of the team at IOR, the company has been able to expand its product and service offering and now provides a diverse range of petroleum and fluid storage solutions throughout Australia to the transport, mining, municipal and rural sectors.
Stewart is thrilled to be celebrating IOR’s 30th year of operation in 2014. IOR has positioned itself as a key organisation in the ecology of Australia’s fuel industry, and Stewart is looking forward to another 30 years and more of ambitious growth and the proactive development and diversification of IOR’s services, products and cutting edge technology.
Stewart proudly serves on the board of Careflight Australia.
