Great Lakes Towing Company Chairman Appointed to ORDC

Thursday, February 17, 2011
An honored member of the transportation industry and U.S. Navy veteran will join the Ohio Rail Development Commission.  Bringing over 50 years of experience in maritime transportation, Great Lakes Towing Company Chairman Ronald C. Rasmus has been appointed to the ORDC.  His appointment was made by out-going Governor Ted Strickland.
 
“The ORDC has always been about maximizing ways in which all modes can work together to make economic development and jobs happen in Ohio, “ said ORDC Chairman James Bradley, “and the appointment of Ron Rasmus serves to strengthen the intermodal commitment of this Commission.”
 
Mr. Rasmus shares that view.
 
“I look forward to sharing my years of maritime industry and transportation experience with the Ohio Rail Development Commission in order to assist the Commission to fully understand the value of a new multi-modal approach to the transportation system to the economic benefit of the State of Ohio through new job creation and improved trade opportunities for Ohio businesses.  Projects such as the Port of Cleveland’s marine-rail loop and the Port of Toledo’s on-dock rail improvements at several multi-modal facilities to create greater freight flow from the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and even nationally are all excellent examples of how transportation modes can be better utilized for the greater economic good of Ohio.”
