Moore Named Executive VP, Hayo VP-Finance At Wisconsin Barge Line

Ronald E. Moore has been promoted to executive vice president of Wisconsin Barge Line, Inc., and Michael T. Hayo, a certified public accountant, has joined the St. Louisbased company as vice president-finance and treasurer.

Joseph W. Rose, board chairman, president, and chief executive officer, said that Mr. Moore's promotion from vice presidentmarketing and the addition of Mr. Hayo to WBL's management team are part of a realignment of top management resulting from the company's relocation to the St. Louis area. Under the realignment, Mr. Moore and Mr. Hayo report directly to Mr. Rose, a veteran riverman.

Mr. Rose, who left retirement in 1978 to head WBL, was a co-owner of Rose Barge Line. Rose Barge Line, after being sold by the Rose family, was reorganized as Agri- Trans Corporation.

Changes in the realignment include: An- thony F. DeJohn, director-operations; Gary L. Reeves, manager-transportation; Bruce A. Mechling, director-engineering; and Hugh L. Hammond, director-Gulf operations, reporting to Mr. Moore, who also assumes responsibility for terminal and fleeting operations in certain river locations.

Reporting to Mr. Hayo are Don E. Fuller, director-administration and personnel, assistant secretary and assistant treasurer; David T. Hawkins, controller; Edward L.

Girou, manager-data processing; and Jimmy L. Sutherlen, manager-purchasing, engineering shop.
