The National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC) has named Marian Barreto as its Operations and Meeting Manager.
In this new position, Marian will help manage NRC programs and events and support the association’s annual conference. She also will collaborate with association leadership and members to manage the membership database and annual renewals, coordinate association committee work, and produce the membership newsletter.
Marian brings to the NRC nearly 10 years of operations management experience. She most recently served as Chief Operations Officer for MAZ Management, a seven-location, multidisciplinary dental group in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. She has broad experience managing multi-faceted operations and coordinating events with venues, hotels, and restaurants.
“We are delighted to welcome Marian to the NRC,” says NRC President Ashley Wieland. “We’re confident she will be an effective team player who can juggle a lot of balls. We look forward to working with Marian to continue to enhance the quality and value of NRC programs and events for our members.”
About the NRC - 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 in1978, the NRC connects members with other railway industry professionals and government officials and policy makers. 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.
