CF Rail Services, a leading railcar repair and maintenance provider, has appointed Chuck Zekis to the position of Director of Network Sales, Sourcing and Business Development. He was promoted from his former position as Director of Sourcing, Procurement and Materials Administration.
“Since joining us in 2014, Chuck has greeted every challenge with an emphasis on integrity, superior customer service, teamwork and adding value, “said Jerry Bohacik, Vice President of Repair Operations. “He has proven to be a valuable member of the team and we look forward to his continued contributions in his new position.”
Chuck and his family live in Munster, Indiana, and he divides his time between the CF Rail Services Schaumburg, IL headquarters and their various shop locations. He earned his MBA in Operations Management from DePaul University, and came to CF Rail Services with over twenty-five years of experience in purchasing, production, and inventory control.
In his prior role with CF Rail Services, he implemented sourcing initiatives to increase efficiencies while reducing the costs of rail car parts and shop supplies.
