OmniTRAX, an affiliate of The Broe Group, has elected Cameron Scott as Board Chair.

Scott was appointed EVP and COO of Union Pacific in 2014 and retired in 2019. In that role, he was responsible for train operations throughout 23 western states, including management and maintenance of locomotives, rail cars, tracks, train dispatching and crew calling. He was previously vice president – network planning and operations (NPO), responsible for directing the railroad’s service design, transportation planning, and network development to meet customer needs. Prior to his appointment to NPO, he held the position of regional vice president – western region.

A graduate of Arizona State University with a BA in business management, Scott earned his MBA from the University of Texas. He also completed the Executive Management Program at Stanford University.

“In my three decades in rail, I know how remarkable OmniTRAX’s velocity of growth truly is,” said Scott. “Coming from Union Pacific, I recognize OmniTRAX’s unique ability to work with Class I railroad partners to generate growth using proven methods that resulted in its current position in the marketplace. The company’s deep industrial development capabilities and unparalleled expertise delivering complete rail-based solutions makes OmniTRAX uniquely positioned to grow American communities.”

“As our customers ramp up for increased demand consumption and new supply chain models, our focus is on growing carload volume to support those expanded needs, as well as investing in our assets and the communities we serve,” said OmniTRAX CEO Kevin Shuba. “Cam’s record of optimizing rail operations and his extensive network of contacts provide the ideal guidance to meet the needs of a changing marketplace.”

“OmniTRAX success lies in its world class team, its dual commitment to service and safety, and its unique capability to simplify rail for customers,” said Sean Broe, OmniTRAX board member and second-generation owner. “By further integrating OmniTRAX into the Class I network, Cam will help the team expand our reach and deliver rail’s transformative supply chain efficiency to more customers.”
