Andrew Stahl

I grew-up on a small farm outside Springfield, Oregon. After starting college with a violin scholarship, I gravitated to economics, earning a B.S. with honors and later a master's degree from the University of Oregon. As a graduate student, I studied rail industry issues concerning market power effects, merger synergies, captured shipper rates, and marginal cost estimations of individual rail movements. My master's paper consisted of an operational, funding and demand analysis of Amtrak.

After graduate school, I moved to California, where I was charged with overseeing the structuring and listing of financial derivatives for a start-up online exchange. My work later called for a move to Chicago, hub of the futures and options business.

Wanting a change, and keen to move into the growing rail industry, I held tenure as an Executive Recruiter with Edna A. Rice, Executive Recruiters, Inc. After learning the trade — and eager to set out on my own — I formed my own agency to make an individualized, positive mark within our growing transportation industry.

Having also worked for a time within the auto industry, I maintain a continued interest in all things automotive, with particular passions for racing, auto restoration and road trips. My other interests include music, film, military history and motorcycles.
