The Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) Executive Committee on Jan. 27 promoted Urszula Soucie to Chief Operating Officer and Sean Winkler to Director of Advocacy, effectively immediately.

Soucie joined REMSA in 2011 as Director of Trade shows and Operations. In her new role, she is responsible for developing and maintaining REMSA membership, administering the association’s member benefit programs, organizing conferences and exhibitions and overseeing daily organizational management.

Winkler joined REMSA 2015 as Grassroots Coordinator, working to build the association’s grassroots program, develop its media-related initiatives and support rail industry initiatives in Washington, D.C. He is now responsible for coordinating supplier grassroots efforts and growing the association’s advocacy efforts in relation to Congress and the Trump Administration, as well as establishing new member value and press initiatives.

“The REMSA Board feels that these promotions will create a strong management team led by our Executive Director and CEO David Tennent,” said REMSA Board President Bruce Wise. “We are pleased to see the growth our internal team has displayed and strongly believe they are well-qualified to guide REMSA through the challenges and opportunities we face moving forward.”

“Our staff has been an integral part in REMSA’s success in trade shows, attracting membership, and implementing our efforts in Washington,” Tennent said. “Ms. Soucie and Mr. Winkler have been tremendous assets to our organization, and we could not be prouder of the growth they both have achieved. They will both be integral parts of REMSA’s future success.”
