Virtual Meeting: Chuck Samul, Director of Sales and Marketing, New York & Atlantic Railway
January 7 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST
Charles “Chuck” Samul joined the New York & Atlantic Railway in July 2014 as Manager Marketing Projects and was appointed Director Sales and Marketing in 2018. He began his railroad career in 1978 with Conrail, as a produce inspector at the Hunts Point Terminal Market. He held positions in a variety of departments at Conrail: risk management, claims, industrial development, eventually ending up at the corporate headquarters in Philadelphia working in marketing, real estate and line sales.
At Norfolk Southern he worked in the real estate department and served as liaison for all property transactions in New Jersey, New York and Detroit. Taking a break from the rail industry he spent 5 years working in fine wine, 5 years working in public finance for the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York and 2 years in graduate school, before being lured back by the sweet perfume of diesel fuel to the New York & Atlantic Railway.
Chuck holds a BS from Cornell University in Agronomy and an MS from Columbia University in Sustainability Management. When not engaged in new business development for NY&A, he enjoys kayaking, hiking, cooking and reading about (and drinking) wine. He and his wife Pam have an adult daughter and a very energetic Vizsla.
