Gary Starr

Foreman

Years at Midwest Mole: 23
Gary is married and he likes to farm and hunt. He has a small herd of beef cattle that keeps him busy when he’s not at work.

He first joined Midwest Mole in the late 1990s. After leaving for about a year, he came back and hasn’t left since. Gary got his start with us as a laborer, then moved up to an operator position before earning a promotion to his current foreman role. His primary responsibilities are to keep his field crew on schedule and keep production moving, and he also works with the CSX teams as a consultant.

Gary enjoys the challenges of his job and the way he works as a bridge between Midwest Mole superintendents and his crew of CSX people — “I enjoy being able to interact with both companies like that,” he says. Gary thinks that what sets Midwest Mole apart from the competition is how “they listen to me when I have ideas. These are good people to work for. You’re not just a number to them. They know your name, they know your family, and it shows.”
