North Carolina Railroad taps Arant as VP of engineering
The North Carolina Railroad Co. (NCRR) has named Donald Arant vice president of engineering.
Grant joined the railroad in 2015 as its first full-time staff engineer. Prior to that, he worked for the global engineering and architecture firm STV Inc.'s office in Charlotte, North Carolina, NCRR officials said in a press release.
As VP, Arant will plan and executive the railroad's infrastructure strategy for its 317-mile corridor. He will ensure that the railroad is prepared to meet the needs of both current and future freight and passenger service, said NCRR President Scott Saylor.
"Donald brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as a genuine love of railroad engineering, to an extremely important role at the company," Saylor said.
