2021 Rising Stars Recognition


 

About Progressive Railroading's Rising Stars

Progressive Railroading has been reporting on workforce development in the railroad industry for the past several years. In 2013, we set out to discover not only how rail businesses are trying to recruit and retain new railroaders, but who some of the industry's up-and-comers might be. As a result, the "Rising Stars" program was launched to identify individuals under the age of 40 who already are making a difference in the rail industry.

The magazine defines a "Rising Star" as someone under 40 years of age who has made, or is making, a positive impact on his or her company, organization, department or team, and is viewed by others — peers, colleagues, supervisors, clients or associates — as an up-and-coming leader in the rail industry.

We will celebrate the 2021 Rising Stars through a celebration in summer or fall 2021.
