THE president and CEO of SC Ports Authority President and CEO Jim Newsome has received the Distinguished Service Award from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville's, Global Supply Chain Institute.

The advisory board for the Haslam College of Business' Global Supply Chain Institute presented the award to Mr Newsome for his many contributions to both the supply chain field and the university.



Mr Newsome received his bachelor's degree in transportation and logistics and his MBA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He said that his education at UT was an invaluable foundation for his career and that the Global Supply Chain Institute creates great opportunities for students preparing to embark on their careers.



After earning his degrees at UT, Newsome embarked on a career in the shipping industry, including executive roles at Nedlloyd Lines and becoming president of Hapag-Lloyd America Inc. In 2009, Mr Newsome became the president and CEO of SC Ports Authority and during his tenure, he has successfully pursued vital infrastructure projects, significantly grown port operations and doubled cargo volumes.



'During my nearly 45-year business career, my logistics degree from UT has opened many doors for me around the world,' Mr Newsome said. 'I am very proud of the work done by Chad Autry and the supply chain management faculty to build one of the best supply chain programmes in the country. It is a great honour to be a small part of that, and I look forward to a continued association with the Haslam and the university.'



Mr Newsome remains very involved with the university today by serving on the Dean's Advisory Council of the Haslam College of Business, mentoring supply chain students, providing critical content for courses, and establishing the Mr and Mrs James/ Newsome Jr Scholarship for supply chain management students.
