RSI Reorganizes Committee on Equipment Leasing

August 21, 2014. -- The RSI Equipment Leasing Committee under the new leadership of Paul Deasy, President, Chicago Freight Car Leasing Company is composed of representatives from prominent freight car leasing companies.  The Committee was originally created to evaluate and guide RSI in key regulatory and public policy issues affecting the leasing industry, which often involve railroad service relations issues, however the committee is uniquely situated in the industry to provide a strategic oversight role for identifying gaps in activities and initiatives to support the equipment leasing community.   Under the reorganization of the Committee, the following areas will receive primary committee attention: Stronger Industry Advocacy, Marketing Communications/ Public Relations and AAR Relations. The committee would not guide activities/ initiatives that are already being driven by other RSI Committees and other organizations that represent the interests of the equipment leasing community.

The Committee looks to have a fall meeting in Washington, DC which will include a meeting with the members of the Surface Transportation Board.
