Marc Stewart has been hired as BYU-Pathway’s new budget officer, and his duties will be to oversee the program’s budget process, maintain the general ledger, and manage BYU-Pathway’s financial reports, payroll, and receivable and payable accounts.
Marc grew up in Sugar City, Idaho – just a few miles from BYU-Idaho. He and his wife, Taunia, have been married for 16 years and are the parents of four children. Together, they love exploring the outdoors through hiking, camping, hunting, and fishing.
After graduating from BYU-Idaho in 2004 with a degree in business management, Marc worked for the Idaho National Laboratory as a planning and financial controls specialist. He knew he wanted to return one day to work for BYU-Idaho, though, and over the years he applied for three different jobs – never once getting called in for an interview.
Then in 2013, Marc heard about a job in the university’s Academic Office as the Academic Business Officer. Even though he thought he wouldn’t get an interview, Marc decided to apply for the position. To his surprise, he got the job.
When BYU-Pathway Worldwide was announced in February 2017, Marc began to feel like a big change was coming his way. Even though he wasn’t part of BYU-Pathway, he began to question how he would respond if he were asked to move to Salt Lake City, Utah, where the organization would be relocated. A few weeks after the announcement, BYU-Pathway President Clark Gilbert asked to meet with Marc and offered him the position as BYU-Pathway’s budget officer. After much prayer and consideration, Marc accepted the offer.
“I love BYU-Pathway Worldwide, and I respect and admire everyone working within the organization,” says Marc. “My family and I are excited to be part of this great program and the work it does to serve the global Church. We feel truly blessed to be a part of it.”
