Fort Worth & Western
FORT WORTH, Texas — Fort Worth & Western Railroad has named Thomas Schlosser its new president and chief executive officer. Schlosser will take the place of Steven George, president since 2000, who’s retiring.

Schlosser has worked in railroading since 1971, when he hired out as a brakeman on the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton Railroad. His career also includes stints at Grand Trunk Western, California Northern Railroad, and RailAmerica. He served as chairman of the American Short Line & Regional Railroad Association from 2007 until 2010. He’s served as CEO of Global Rail, a railroad signaling and equipment supplier, for the past three years.

George has served as FW&W’s president since 2000. He worked at Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and successor BNSF from 1971 until 2000.

William S. Davis, the chairman of the family-owned railroad, said, “Once again, I’m uncommonly fortunate to attract superb executive talent for the upper levels of railroad management. The seamless transition of succession from Steven George to Thomas Schlosser will ensure the outstanding quality of service we provide."
