Tynes succeeds Mishra as Central Maine & Quebec's CFO


Central Maine & Quebec Railway (CMQR) has appointed Harold Tynes chief financial officer to succeed Sachi Mishra.

Tynes has more than 30 years of management and financial leadership experience with a range of firms, including the Blackstone Group, Riverside Co., AEA Investors and Fortress Investments. Most recently, he was chief financial officer at Swanson Industries Inc.

Tynes previously served as vice president and controller, and VP of financial services and treasurer at RailAmerica Inc. from 2007 to 2011; president of RailAmerica’s Atlas Railroad Construction affiliate from 2011 to 2013; and corporate controller at Great Lakes Transportation from 2002 to 2004. Earlier in his career, he spent eight years with General Electric Co., starting with GE Appliances and advancing to finance manager at GE Capital.

"Harold and I have worked together previously and we’re counting on his extensive knowledge and experience to help make the CM&Q profitable, efficient and safe," said CMQR Chief Executive Officer John Giles in a press release.

A Fortress Investment Group L.L.C. subsidiary, CMQR launched operations on May 15 after acquiring nearly 500 route miles of track in Quebec, Maine and Vermont from the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway.
