FreightCar America Promotes Riordan to CFO

FreightCar America promoted Michael A. Riordan to CFO. Riordan has served as the company’s corporate controller and chief accounting officer since November 2020 and will replace Terence R. Rogers, who joined FreightCar America in early 2021 and will leave the company after a transition period.

“On behalf of the entire FreightCar America team, I want to thank Terry for his many contributions to our successes during the past year,” Jim Meyer, president and CEO of FreightCar America, said. “Terry joined us on short notice last year at a critical time for the company. He has been an integral part of the team and we wish him all the very best.

“We are thrilled to have Mike become part of FreightCar America’s executive leadership team. Mike has been instrumental in everything that we have accomplished over the past couple of years and has provided leadership through both his financial expertise and comprehensive knowledge of our operations. He is an operating partner in every sense.”

“I am excited to have the opportunity to lead the company as its CFO as we pivot to our next phase, which includes sustainable growth,” Riordan said. “I also want to thank Terry for his support and mentorship during the past year as I prepared for this role.”

Riordan has more than 15 years of experience in finance, accounting and operations. Prior to joining FreightCar America, Riordan was controller at InnerWorkings from 2017 to 2020. Prior to joining InnerWorkings, Riordan served in several financial management positions at Wheatland Tube, which is a subsidiary of Zekelman Industries, from 2013 to 2017. Riordan also held various positions at PricewaterhouseCoopers and is a certified public accountant.
