John Stewart is president of Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. in Erwin, Tennessee.

Stewart, who was named NFS president in June 2018, has more than 30 years of experience in the nuclear industry.

Before joining NFS, Stewart served as president and general manager of BWSR, LLC since 2012. He has led BWXT’s work to decommission former Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program sites at the Naval Reactors Facility in Idaho, Bettis Laboratory in Pennsylvania, and the Knolls Laboratory and Kesselring Site in New York.

Prior to leading BWSR, he was chief of nuclear safety operations at Babcock & Wilcox Y-12 for three years. The safety records at both Y-12 and BWSR under Stewart’s leadership were outstanding.

He spent 25 years in the U.S. Navy, serving as a staff engineer at the Naval Reactors headquarters in Washington, D.C. and commanding officer of the Ohio-class submarine USS Tennessee before being promoted to deputy commander of Submarine Squadron Sixteen/Twenty and commanding officer of the Trident Refit Facility at Kings Bay, Georgia.

Stewart earned a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy and master’s degrees in engineering management and national resources management from the Catholic University of America and Industrial College of the Armed Forces, respectively.
