Conrail elects LeVan as CEO
Conrail Inc. elected President David M. LeVan as its chief executive officer, completing a management succession plan begun in September.
Mr. LeVan, 49, fills the post left by James A. Hagen, who will retire as chief executive but remain chairman. Mr. Hagen, 62, has held the two positions since 1989 and has no specific plans to leave the chairman's seat, a spokesman said.
Mr. LeVan joined the company in 1978 as assistant controller and has since held various positions with the Philadelphia-based rail company.
