RSI Names Lee Verhey New Executive Director of the RSI Committee on Tank Cars
RSI also announces the retirement of John Byrne from the Committee on Tank Cars.
"Since joining RSI, Lee has consistently demonstrated his extensive technical knowledge of rail tank car specifications, manufacturing, repair, and maintenance,"
Before joining RSI in 2020, Verhey previously served as the Senior Vice President of Quality at TrinityRail and brings more than four decades of experience in railcar operations to the position. As RSI's Director of Regulatory and Industry Affairs, Lee has overseen the day-to-day management of several RSI technical committees including the Equipment Leasing Committee, the American Railway Car Institute, and the Quality Assurance Committee.
Verhey's appointment comes as RSI CTC Vice Chair John Byrne announced earlier this year that he would be retiring after more than 40 years in the industry, having spent the past six with RSI. Byrne began his career in Chicago at North American Car Company and went on to spend nearly 38 years at GE Capital, most recently serving as Manager, Regulatory Compliance and Quality.
On his departure, William Constantino, Chair of the RSI CTC and Marmon Leasing Group President said, "John Byrne has been a true asset to this Committee and has led tank car owners and lessors through many significant milestones during his time with RSI. We wish John the best in his retirement."
