Morristown & Erie, Maine Eastern shuffle management staff
Morristown & Erie Railway Inc. (M&E) and Maine Eastern Railroad have made several management changes, such as by eliminating some positions and redefining others, to better accommodate growth and develop business opportunities.
M&E Chief Mechanical Officer Charles Jensen has been promoted to vice president and chief operating officer. He will oversee the daily operations of the M&E and Maine Eastern Railroad.
In addition, master mechanic Gregory Dodd has been promoted to CMO to succeed Jensen, and mechanic Steve Stecko has been promoted to master mechanic to succeed Dodd.
Jensen, Dodd, and Stecko each have been employed by the M&E for more than 10 years and have extensive Class I and short line experience, M&E officials said in a press release.
Meanwhile, Mike Moore has been promoted to superintendent, a position formerly held by Don Marson, to facilitate the long-term success of the Maine Eastern Railroad, they said. Moore has served the Maine Eastern for seven years in train service, and in such posts as designated supervisor of locomotive engineers and mechanical supervisor.
M&E, which operates four lines in northern New Jersey totaling 158 miles, is marking its 110th anniversary this year. The Maine Eastern Railroad operates two lines in Maine.
