GE's rail services unit names Wileman president, CEO


GE Equipment Services, Rail Services recently appointed Jay Wileman president and chief executive officer to succeed Ted Torbeck, who assumed a corporate position with General Electric Co.

He later became manager of the division’s Technical Services business. Prior to GE, Wileman served as a nuclear fuel engineer and commercial manager for Southern Co.

The Rail Services unit provides rail-car leasing, financial, maintenance, remarketing and asset tracking services. The company manages a fleet of 170,000 cars, including box, flat, plastics and tank cars; coal, grain and specialty hoppers; and mill gondolas.
