The European Rail Freight Association (ERFA) has appointed a new secretary general. Starting from 26 August, Conor Feighan has taken office, heading the Brussels-based company that represents the European railway industry. Feighan replaces Carole Coune.
Conor Feighan has worked within the transport sector in Brussels for the past eight years.
Previously, he worked at FEPORT, the European Association representing terminal operators and private port companies. Here he gained extensive experience in representing the interests of private industries within the transport sector.
Prior to working for the port industry, Feighan has worked in the European Parliament and the European Economic and Social Committee. He holds a Masters Degree in European Politics from the University College Dublin.
“I am looking forward to representing ERFA Members on an EU level at this exciting moment. We are facing a new legislative cycle in which concrete action must to be taken to make all sectors of the European economy, including transport, sustainable. ERFA has a crucial role to play in this transition”, Feighan said.
The new secretary general was nominated by the Board of Director after a rigorous selection procedure, ERFA commented.
