Irving’s RailPros Hires Jacobs Veteran as Chief Operating Officer

Irving-based RailPros has hired veteran executive Marco Loureiro as chief operating officer of the company that focuses exclusively on providing services to freight, passenger, and transit rail carriers across North America.

RailPros, which has offices nationwide, was founded in 2000. It said Loureiro will be based in Irving.

In a statement, RailPros’ CEO Kendall Koff welcomed Loureiro to the team, citing his expertise as an asset to the company’s strategic and growth-oriented decision-making. Koff also highlighted the executive’s “dedication to staff development and operational health will enable us to continue to provide our employees and clients with exceptional service.”

Previously, Luereiro worked at Dallas-based professional services company Jacobs for seven years, where he was vice president of operations.

A recognized leader in the architecture and engineering industry, Loureiro brings more than two decades of experience in progressively expanding roles to his new position. RailPros said he is an accomplished executive and team builder with a proven track record in both rail and transit projects.

As COO, Loureiro will oversee the company’s operations and provide strategic guidance and direction for ongoing pursuits. The company said he will continue to lead toward growth and progress while fostering a culture of staff development, collaboration, and leadership.

Third executive hire in the last year

Loureiro decided to join Team RailPros because their values and beliefs align with his own. He said those values include a dedication to collaboration, growth, customer satisfaction, and responsible business practices.

He emphasized that by working together, RailPros can adapt to industry changes, solve complex problems, and positively impact communities and the environment. “We can create a workplace that is not only successful, but fulfilling and meaningful for all involved,” he said in a statement.

RailPros said the company continues to enjoy unprecedented growth.

Loureiro comes to RailPros as its third executive hire in the last 12 months, following Chief People Officer Daniel Carter, and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Vines.

RailPros employs nearly 1,000 rail and transit engineers, construction managers, inspectors, design engineers, and field support staff, enabling it to service the full spectrum of the industry’s management, engineering, construction management, planning, and design needs.

It has a combined training and media production team, producing technical and safety training for rail carriers and rail-related industrial clients.
