DiMichael to Leave NIT League

The National Industrial Transportation League has announced that general counsel Nicholas J. DiMichael will step down from his position at the end of the year, citing a desire to spend more time with his family.

DiMichael, a 21-year veteran of the NIT League who will continue to serve several clients through the law firm of Thompson Hine, will be succeeded by NIT League colleague, Karyn Booth.

At its annual meeting next week, the NIT League– which represents more than 600 companies conducting industrial and/or commercial shipping throughout the United States and internationally– will honor DiMichael with its “Executive of the Year” award.

According to the NIT League, during his tenure DiMichael played a key role in key legislation regarding motor carrier rates, the creation of the Surface Transportation Board, and various ocean shipping regulatory and reform efforts.
