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

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
