Meet Will Newman – New Senior Director of Plant Operations

Will Newman of Ashland City is the new Senior Director of Plant Operations at Vol State. In that role, he supervises the maintenance, facilities and custodial staffs at the College. Newman comes most recently from DELEK/MAPCO in Brentwood where he was Senior Manager of Maintenance for 374 retail locations. He was also Facilities Manager at Hemlock Semiconductor in Clarksville. He worked in higher education at Fisk University as Assistant Director of Facilities and Grounds. 

“I’ve worked in all the aspects of property management and the one that was the most fulfilling was education,” he said. “You can really enjoy the people around you and see the students go on and graduate.”

Newman is a decorated war veteran with service in the US Army for Operation Iraqi Freedom. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Professional and Technical Management from Austin Peay State University.

“The team here at Vol State is above and beyond other local colleges. I want to add some new techniques and opportunities using what they have already worked so hard to establish. There are just so many opportunities here. I’m working with a staff that really wants to be here.”
