Panelist Bio


Ken A. Miller
ExxonMobil Plant Manager

Ken is the Engineering Services Manager for the ExxonMobil facilities in the Baton Rouge area and is located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Ken began his career at the Baton Rouge Chemical Plant in 1978 after receiving a B.S degree in Mechanical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University. From 1978 to 1990, Ken held various positions in Engineering, Operations and Maintenance organizations at the Chemical Plant.

From 1991 to 1997, Ken managed several different companies supporting the refining/petrochemical industries. In late 1997 Ken rejoined ExxonMobil Chemical at the Baytown Olefins Plant as the Engineering Specialist Supervisor.

In January 2000, immediately following the merger, Ken relocated to Beaumont. In 2002 Ken was appointed Beaumont Chemicals Engineering Manager. In late 2005 Ken led the team responsible for synergizing engineering across the Beaumont complex and at the beginning of 2006 assumed the expanded role of Engineering Services Manager supporting Refining and Chemicals operations.

In 2008, Ken returned to Baytown in the Central Project Management Core organization as Area Interface Manager. This assignment was interrupted by an 8 month special assignment as Planning Manager for the reconstruction of the Beaumont Chemical Plant following Hurricane Ike.

In late 2010, Ken returned to Baton Rouge as the Engineering Services Manager. In this role, he supports the four Chemical/Refinery facilities (BRRF, BRCP, BRPO, BRPP).

Ken was born and grew up in South Louisiana. He and his wife Judy have 4 children. Ken is an avid golfer. He is a member of the Board of Directors for Education’s Next Horizon and the Foundation for the EBRSS.

Current Topic


     12/18 - News About the News (Encore)

How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference?
According to the 2018 Louisiana Survey, when it comes to trusting news organizations, more Louisiana residents put their faith in local media than national media outlets. Despite that trust, only 36 percent of the state’s news consumers say local news deals fairly with both sides.

So, why is there so much mistrust of the news media? Where are consumers primarily getting their news? How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on a special encore presentation of “News about the News” airing Wednesday, December 26 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.
