Here on this web site and in our flagship publication, The Pocket List of Railroad Officials, we track and publish details on personnel changes at suppliers, railroads and contractors. Today, we have a personnel addition of our own to announce as John Parker has joined our Rail Group in a newly created sales position.
Based in Houston, John (or JP, as his friends call him) will help serve existing customers and prospects in the Central and Pacific regions of the country. He will largely be focused on digital media, including marketing opportunities in our group’s e-newsletter that reaches about 14,000 railroaders and suppliers and on our web site: www.RailResource.com. He will also sell advertising space in The Pocket List, our quarterly print publication that is a directory of railroad suppliers and freight and passenger railroads.
I’m pleased to have John join us. His experience working in the railway supply industry for the last few years and his enthusiasm make him a great addition to the team.
And team is a concept John is very familiar with. He played college basketball and coached basketball for nine years. He enjoys sports traveling, and is a Civil War enthusiast. John can be reached at email@example.com.
