Tealinc, Ltd., a railcar operating lessor/broker and rail transportation manager/consultant, has promoted Kristen Kempson to Manager Value Creation-Sales and Marketing.
Prior to joining Tealinc, Kempson spent more than a decade in the railroad industry as a railcar fleet maintenance manager. She has experience in AAR billing and the shopping of damaged and defective railcars. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Elmhurst College, in Elmhurst, Ill.
“For almost two years now, Kristen Kempson has been a highly valued member of the Tealinc family,” said President Julie Mink. “Her commitment to the company, exemplary work ethic and hard work show daily. Kristen’s customer service skills shine with every project she completes and truly reflect Tealinc’s customer first mentality. Within her marketing and sales role, she has introduced the Tealinc brand to prospective clients with creativity and enthusiasm. Additionally, she has engaged with railroads, suppliers and multiple shippers to successfully buy, sell and lease rolling stock including mill gondolas, open top hoppers, flatcars, covered hoppers—even a locomotive. We look forward to continuing our focused growth by acquiring private rail assets that are complementary to our customers’ shipping needs. Kristen’s tenacity, perseverance, customer service and big-picture thought process are an asset to Tealinc and truly show that she is ready to lead Tealinc sales and marketing. We are fortunate to have Kristen on the team.”
Tealinc, Ltd. says its structure “is more of a tactical and boutique approach to rail focused on niche industry shippers, receivers and railroads who may be new to rail or unfamiliar with private rail equipment, and are looking for personalized customer support or direction in rail best-practices. Tealinc focuses on assisting customers not only in acquiring and leasing private equipment but also in marketing, selling, leasing and assessing their private rail fleet.
