BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Patriot Rail Corp. ("Patriot"), a leading operator of short line and regional freight railroads, today announced the addition of George Avery Grimes, PE, PhD, ("Avery") to its management team as Executive Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer.  Grimes will be responsible for revenue growth through initiation and evaluation of strategic acquisitions, infrastructure investments, and margin expansion opportunities.  He will also be Patriot's liaison with Class I freight railroad strategic projects.

Grimes has served in a number of senior level positions at Class I freight railroads Missouri Pacific, Union Pacific, and Kansas City Southern.  He also served as SVP-Strategic Planning with short line holding company OmniTrax.

Most recently, Grimes served as Deputy CEO at Metrolink (Southern California Regional Rail Authority) and at Metra (Northeast Illinois Regional Commuter Railroad Corporation).
