NITL President Ficker Resigns

John Ficker, president of the National Industrial Transportation League, will step down at the end of November, NITL said Monday.

“Following the [NITL] board of directors meeting on Wednesday last week, John tendered me his resignation as NITL president,” NITL chairman Curt Warfel wrote in an e-mailed statement on Monday.

Ficker joined NITL as president in 2003.

NITL said it will immediately begin searching for a replacement for Ficker.
