Redfearn Capital’s management team has over 40 years of railroad experience acquiring and creating value through its acquisition program. The team has partnered with one of the leading private equity funds in the world to acquire and manage shortline and regional railroads in the North America.
RailAmerica was co-founded by Don Redfearn in the mid-1980s and helped grow the company to over $100 million of EBTIDA, and was listed on the NYSE (“RRA”) in 2002. In 2007, Mr. Redfearn led the team in selling the company to Fotress Investment Group for over $1.1 billion. At the time, RailAmerica had over 60 railroads in North America and Canada which were acquired over a 20-year period.
