I could use some help, please. I would like to contact Howard Hitchcock, Lionel CEO. Does anyone have his contact information? In addition, does anyone know the name/contact of Lionel's parent company?                                                                                         Many thanks.

Easy, post  a letter to him at Lionel.  John

While I generally agree with the preceding comments about real mail vs. email, remember that he may be working remotely like so many other people these days.  If he's not going into the office, getting snail mail into his hands might not be a smooth process.

I work in an office, and haven't known of anyone to get an actual piece of mail in at least 10 years (other than junk).  Even contracts are signed electronically.   

I hope you are able to make contact with him.

Having had 40 years of a profession in which I've had to contact CEOs, CFOs, and Chairman of the Boards, there is one and only way way to do it professionally, courteously, and with certainty that he/she will receive it and read it.

A formal letter, on nice heavy-weight stationary, mailed by regular mail.

Don't worry, executives working at home will have no problem getting mail that was delivered to their offices.  They will have a runner bringing it out to the exec at least every other day.  They are not going to let it sit there on a desk.

A message in a written letter is virtually permanent when it reaches a company.  They can't ignore it and they don't throw it away.   It gets filed.

Emails are ephemeral.  An executive easily receives 30 or 40 a day.   He flips through them rapidly, deleting most of them after he has read them.  Sometime, he only reads the first line, judges its importance or not, and trash cans those which he deems unimportant.

A well written letter, with proper grammar and spelling, is far rarer these days.  It in and of itself demonstrates care and importance.

Hope this info helps.

Interesting, one of the links does not show Mr. Hitchcock as CEO. Does that mean there is no CEO for Lionel, there is a different CEO for Lionel, or that Mr. Hitchcock is also CEO?

Lionel did away with the title CEO when control passed from Jerry Calabrese to Howard Hitchcock.  He's in charge, same if not more responsibilities, but without the title.
