Stewart Morland has been involved in the Australian Energy sector for more than 25 years.
Since his first venture in the Eromanga Basin in the 1990s Stewart has been at the forefront of the upstream development in Australia's oil and gas sectors. This involvement led to the growth and evolution of the IOR Group into one of Australia's leading suppliers of fuels and storage systems for fuel in the coal seam and shale gas sectors. His company has also established a network of unmanned refuelling stations throughout Australia, and operates an oil refinery in the Eromanga Basin.
Stewart's additional business interests include transport, aviation and marine charter and computer software and hardware development.
Stewart has a strong commitment to philanthropic endeavours which saw him sit as Chairman of LifeFlight for seven years from 2006; a time of service expansion and diversification within the not-for-profit organisation. During his tenure LifeFlight responded to a clear community need in South West Queensland, establishing a helicopter rescue base in Toowoomba. It was to become a 24 hour service in 2010. LifeFlight aeromedical bases were also introduced into the Surat Basin and Gladstone regions, servicing growing communities throughout regional Queensland.
Stewart is married to Tracey and they have two adult children.
