David Rohal Forms Investment, Consulting Firm

David Rohal has helped form an investment and consulting firm in San Diego that specializes in ground transportation, energy and infrastructure.

Rohal, who is the son of Akron Railroad Club member and former president Bob Rohal, helped to form Dahlman Rohal & Associates along with Ernie Dahlman.

Dahlman is a Wall Street investment banking firm partner while Rohal has 30 years of experience in railroad management operations and transportation.

“We have combined our diverse talents to create a cohesive force for pursuing large, complex projects that often have multiple stakeholders with different objectives. An early focus of ours will be on unlocking stranded value in the Cali-Baja Mega Region”

Rohal previously worked at CSX, Genesee & Wyoming, RailAmerica, Florida East Coast and Patriot Rail. Most recently, he was with the Pacific Imperial Railroad in California.

The two partners first met and became interested in the Mega Region when originally recruited to form a management team for the dormant Pacific Imperial.

Dahlman Rohal & Associates has formed strategic associations with The Charlton Group, whose managing member, Charlie Patterson, is a sales and marketing executive in the rail industry, and with Main Line Transportation Professionals, whose managing partner, David Arganbright, is also a railroad veteran who has worked in the development of public-private partnerships.

“We have combined our diverse talents to create a cohesive force for pursuing large, complex projects that often have multiple stakeholders with different objectives,” said Rohal. “An early focus of ours will be on unlocking stranded value in the Cali-Baja Mega Region.”
