Welcome Denk

c_Michael_Denk_NewTrainmasterMichael Denk became the Belt’s newest trainmaster May 26. He previously held the same role for another railroad.

He enjoys the change of scenery.

“I was looking for different opportunities,” he said. “I look forward to meeting all these great people. My short-term goals are to learn the yard, train designs and about the other carriers coming in here.”

Away from his new job, Denk stays active by playing basketball, and running and biking in duathlons and 5- and 10-kilometer races.

He and his wife, Jessica, have children, Giovanni, 21, and Karina, 16.
