PHILADELPHIA — Timothy Tierney will succeed Ronald Batory as president and chief operating officer of Conrail on April 1. Batory is retiring after nearly 46 years in the railroad industry, according to a news release issued by Norfolk Southern this week.

Tierney has worked for Conrail for 39 years and most recently served as vice president and chief engineering for the terminal and switching railroad jointly owned by NS and CSX Transportation. Tierney worked within Conrail’s engineering division for years and between 1996 and 1999 he worked as chief engineer, helping plan and implement the Conrail split.

“Tim Tierney has served Conrail with distinction and proven himself to be a successful, trusted leader with an exceptional commitment to hard work and safety,” Batory says. “Tim brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the rail industry and will continue to accelerate Conrail’s commitment to providing safe, efficient service.”
Batory joined Conrail in 1998 and was named chief operating officer and president in 2004. Prior to that he worked for the Belt Railway Company of Chicago.
