Senior Research Fellow
Charlie has over 30 years experience in transportation policy at the national level. Early in his career Charlie served as the Chief of Litigation at the former Interstate Commerce Commission where he was responsible for the court defense of the agency's orders deregulating the nation's trucking industry. In the 80s and 90s, Charlie participated in all the major railroad merger proceedings that collectively transformed and revitalized the freight railroad industry. Under the Clinton administration, he served as the senior railroad industry policy advisor and worked with the President's National Economic Council. He also advised many foreign governments on transportation regulatory, safety, and infrastructure issues. Charlie is currently working on transportation security issues as they impact on supply chain efficiencies, including the policy issues facing the rail industry in the wake of 9/11.
In addition to his Tuck degree, Charlie is a graduate of Boston College and Yale Law School. He also attended the National Security program at the US Army War College. He has been a member of the National Academy of Science's Transportation Research Board, is a member of the board of directors of TRANSLOG International, and is an affiliate of LECG (Law and Economics Consulting Group).
