Wlotko had principal responsibility for the company's sales and marketing efforts. He will assist in the transition of his responsibilities over the next two months.
Patriot Railk President & CEO John Fenton, commenting on Wlotko's retirement, said, "Stan's notable 40-year rail career has been diverse and distinguished. We wish him the best as he enjoys time with his family and friends. We are grateful for his contributions to Patriot and the entire rail industry."
Wlotko's extensive rail career includes senior management roles at Penn Central, Conrail, Denver & Rio Grande Western, Southern Pacific, Union Pacific, RailAmerica and Patriot Rail.
Paul McCarthy, Patriot Rail's vice president of business development, will assume the railroad's sales and marketing oversight function until a permanent successor to Wlotko is named.
