I have confidence in Ken’s ability to align RailPros’ industry-leading operational practices to drive and expand our business. He and I have been working together to ensure a successful transition, and I am confident that under Ken’s leadership and with the strength of our senior Leadership team, we will take RailPros to the next level yet again.”
“I am excited to start this new chapter of RailPros’ already successful story,” stated Koff. “We have some exciting times ahead of us and I am honored to lead our company as we continue to execute our Service Excellence commitment to our clients.”
