Alaska Railroad Corp. (ARRC) has promoted Brian Lindamood from director of project management to vice president of engineering.

He assumes the post that was vacated in January, when former engineering head Clark Hopp became chief operating officer. Lindamood now will oversee the evaluation, planning and construction of ARRC's infrastructure, including bridge maintenance and construction, and capital project management.

Lindamood joined ARRC in 2006 as a capital projects manager and has led the railroad's project management department since January 2012. He previously held senior-level positions at several engineering firms that specialize in railway design and operational analysis, including Hanson-Wilson Inc. and TranSystems Corp. Lindamood also is a past president of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association.

"Involved with railroad infrastructure for two-and-a-half decades, Brian has the broad industry insight and specialized technical knowledge to oversee this vital area of the state's railroad," said ARRC President Bill O'Leary in a press release. "During the dozen years he has worked at the Alaska Railroad, Brian has led high-profile capital projects with complex engineering solutions."
