I have over 15 years of experience in railroad start-ups, process improvement, operations, industrial switching, financial, safety, track maintenance management, locomotive maintenance management, and railcar repair/fleet management. I also have a solid background in railroad safety (OSHA and FRA) and railroad law. I enjoy safety program development/administration and training railroad employees (conductor, engineer, track inspector, operations management, logistics, intermodal, and railcar repair) as well. Starting up new railroads and improving overall performance (finance, operating, marketing/business development, safety) of existing railroads is a very enjoyable activity. I am blessed with solid industry contacts at the FRA, STB, ASLRRA, and at Class 1 and 2 railroads. Visit www.engelkeconsulting.com.to view my consulting website. I have also expanded my breadth of business knowledge to encompass finance, advanced business modelling, and advanced business analysis through my MBA program. On a personal note, I enjoy investing in all types of securities and instruments, priding myself in solid returns and learning something new in the process.
