The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) recently elected Michael Wilson chairman for 2006. Vice president of equipment and logistics for Hamburg Sud North America Inc., Wilson has served IANA in various leadership capacities for the past decade, including vice chairman for 2005. He will succeed Union Pacific Railroad Assistant Vice President of Premium Operations Barry Michaels, who serves as this year’s chairman.
