Dallas – June 21, 2022 – RailPros announced today that it has appointed Jeff Vines as Chief Financial Officer. Vines will oversee the Irving-based company’s finance and accounting department.
“I am delighted to welcome Jeff to the RailPros team,” said Ken Koff, president and chief executive officer of RailPros. “Our executive team is focused on continued growth and long-term strategy, which Jeff will help us achieve. We look forward to his insights and guidance as he steps into the CFO role.”
Vines most recently served as vice president of Transformation at Magellan Healthcare, where he oversaw strategic vendor management and cost control, business disposition and transition services, and operational process improvement.
