Michael R. Haverty (born June 11, 1944), aka Mike Haverty, is the seventeenth CEO of the Kansas City Southern Railway (KCS). Prior to working for KCS, he had been an executive for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. At Santa Fe, he had been responsible for the return of the famous red-and-silver "warbonnet" paint scheme in 1989; at KCS, he was similarly responsible for the revival of the passenger-era red-and-black "Southern Belle" paint scheme, applied to the business train, new ES44ACs and SD70ACes, and now a class of covered hoppers (2007).
In 2001 he was named Railroader of the Year by the leading North American railroad industry publication Railway Age Magazine. In 2014, the Freight House Bridge was renamed the "Michael R. Haverty Freight House Bridge" in his honor.
