COLUMBUS — The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway Development Authority has hired an Alabama man as its new administrator.
The hiring of J. Craig Stepan of Fairhope, Alabama, was announced in a news release. Stepan succeeds Bruce Windham who resigned last year due to illness.
Stepan will also be president of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway Development Council, the authority’s trade association.
Stepan was president and owner of Superior Shipping and Consulting Services LLC, which specialized in multi-modal transportation matters.
The waterway is the largest water resource project ever built in the U.S. The waterway has 10 locks and dams, a 175-foot deep canal connecting the Tennessee River with the Tombigbee River watershed and 234 miles of navigation channels between the Tennessee River and Mobile, Alabama.
Kentucky is also a member of the authority.
