Dec. 2, 2021
The two men join the association board that is comprised of 'a broad cross-section of the railway construction and supply community.'

Two new railway industry professions have been elected to the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association's (NRC) Board of Directors. Chase Armstrong, R.J. Corman vice president of commercial development, and Bob Hirte, Hamilton Construction’s director of railroad development, will begin service as board members starting Jan. 1, 2022.

The newly elected board members will serve three-year terms on the NRC board. They will join six other existing board members who have been re-elected to new terms:

  • Joe Daloisio, Track Division Manager, Railroad Construction Company
  • Allen Branham, President, B4 Solutions, LLC.
  • Erika Bruhnke, Vice President-Training and Media Resources, RailPros
  • Russ Gehl, Executive Vice President-Business Development, CWR Transportation (a sister company to Holland L.P.)
  • Kevin Hicks, National Freight Market Sector Leader, TranSystems
  • Brett Urquhart, Senior Vice President, Vossloh North America

“The NRC is fortunate to have a diverse board that represents a broad cross-section of the railway construction and supply community,” noted NRC President Ashley Wieland. “Although many of our member companies compete against each other, board members come together to benefit the entire NRC membership. Their service is invaluable in our mission to make railway construction safer and stronger.”
