Iowa Interstate's Denny Miller
Iowa Interstate
Dennis H. (Denny) Miller, vice chairman of Iowa Interstate Railroad, has announced his retirement effective Sept. 30 after a 47-year career in railroading.

Miller joined Iowa Interstate on its formation in 1984 and has held positions including vice president customer services, vice president of operations, executive vice president and CEO, and president. He was served on the board of the Association of American Railroads for 15 years and has been on several committees with the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association. He began his career with the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific and also worked with the Peoria & Pekin Union Railroad.

“Iowa Interstate as we stand today has been molded in Denny’s way,” Iowa Interstate Chairman Henry Posner III said in a press release. “His vision and discipline reflected in our infrastructure, our locomotive fleet, our shop facilities and even our offices. Most representative of course is the Dennis H Miller Locomotive Works in South Amana, which was purposely built for the GE fleet that Denny justified based on traffic growth and fuel savings. And most importantly, IAIS won three E.H. Harriman Awards for Safety under his leadership.”
