Montgomery — State Revenue Commissioner Julie P. Magee announced Thursday two senior personnel changes within the Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR).

Magee named Greenville native Curtis Stewart, former Tax Policy and Research Division director, to the post of deputy revenue commissioner.  Magee also appointed Mike Gamble, former Motor Vehicle Division assistant director, to fill the director post vacated by Stewart.

“Over the last year, we have worked to realign and reorganize the department into a more successive organization that will be better prepared to meet new operational and administrative responsibilities,” said Magee.  “I have every confidence in Mr. Stewart’s and Mr. Gamble’s leadership capabilities and know they will serve the department well.”

Stewart joins Joe Garrett, ADOR deputy commissioner, as serving as one of the two deputy commissioners now heading the department’s senior management team, along with Assistant Commissioner Michael E. Mason.

Stewart, a certified public accountant, brings to his new assignment 11 years of combined experience in the private sector as a sole practitioner in the Atlanta area and as a former audit and tax manager with KPMG accounting firm.  Stewart began his career with the ADOR in 1991, and since that time has held management positions within the department in various tax administration areas, including regulatory licenses, severance, tobacco, fuel, sales and use taxes.  Mr. Stewart has served as director of the department’s Tax Policy and Research Division since 2008.

Stewart received a Bachelor of Science degree from the Commerce School of Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va.

Gamble, a certified public manager, began his career with the ADOR in 1992.  Prior to his appointment as director of the Tax Policy and Research Division, Gamble served as assistant director of the department’s Motor Vehicle Division.  Most recently, he served as project manager for implementation of the department’s electronic title application processing system, ETAPS, which significantly reduced the title issuance processing time from weeks to days.  ETAPS is used statewide by 4,000 designated agents to process annually over 1.2 million applications for certificate of title.

Gamble, a native of Huntsville, Ala., received a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the Auburn University and a Master of Business Administration degree from Troy University.
