The Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) has announced that Bruce Wise, president of the organisation since 2017, has stepped down because of a conflict with his new employment.

Wise, who joined the Board of Directors in 2009 and previously served as secretary, treasurer and vice-president, was replaced by Alan Reynolds. Reynolds, who also joined the board in 2009, is currently employed as president of Geismar North America.

David Tennent, CEO and Executive Director of REMSA, said:

“Mr. Wise’s leadership as President is fitting to his name. Bruce has been instrumental in growing our association and propelling REMSA’s mission forward. We want to thank Bruce for his time and commitment to REMSA and will continue to build on the positive momentum with Alan Reynolds as President.”
