Batory named rail adviser to Chao
Former Conrail President and Chief Operating Officer Ron Batory has been selected as a rail adviser to U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) spokesman Marc Willis confirmed late last week.
Earlier this year, Batory was nominated to serve as FRA administrator. The Senate has yet to confirm his appointment.
Batory retired from Conrail in spring. The 46-year rail industry veteran previously served as president of The Belt Railway Co. of Chicago.
