The National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC), a U.S. trade association representing railway contractors and suppliers, announced today that Nicole Womach has been promoted to Vice President of Finance.
Womach joined the NRC in 2000 in the newly created position of Director of Finance. Over the past three years, she has been responsible for managing the association’s financial operations, including the annual budget, day-to-day management and forecasting, and information and asset management. She also serves as a valuable member resource as a liaison to the Finance committee and a support to committee chairs to help ensure the efficient operations of the association.
NRC President Ashley Wieland said Womach’s promotion is well-deserved. “Over the past three years, Nicole has advanced the NRC’s financial management practices toa higher level with expanded planning, accountability and control capabilities,” said NRC President Ashley Wieland. “Her contributions have been invaluable in guiding decision-making by our board of directors. Our members definitely benefit from her outstanding financial stewardship.”
Prior to joining the NRC, Womach served as Director of Finance and Administration for the United Motorcoach Association (UMA), where she directed the financial operations and administrative functions for UMA, UMA Foundation and UMA-PAC(Political Action Committee).
The NRC is a U.S. trade association that advances the mutual interests of railway contractors and suppliers who construct, maintain and supply freight railroads and rail-transit and passenger lines. Founded in 1978, the NRC connects members with other railway industry professionals and government officials and policymakers. The NRC collaborates with its members, government, and industry leaders to create a positive business climate and to make railway construction and maintenance safer and more efficient.
The NRC provides a host of opportunities for railroads, contractors and suppliers to come together. Of course, the Annual Conference is the highlight of the year, but I have found great value in the ongoing educational webinars too. They feature key industry faces and figures to answer questions, tackle tough topics and bring clarity to the many changes happening in Washington.
