CSX announced a change in leadership for its Merchandise and Intermodal Sales & Marketing teams.

Dean Piacente has been appointed Vice President Industrial Products and Maryclare Kenney as Vice President Intermodal and Automotive.

“I’m thrilled to announce Maryclare’s promotion to her new expanded role,” said Mark K. Wallace, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “I’m confident her insights, background and leadership will help drive exceptional service across the portfolio. Dean’s broad experience across CSX’s different markets, as well as his deep knowledge of the needs of our industrial customers, will continue to strengthen our customer partnerships.”

Piacente, who began his career with CSX in 1987, was previously Vice President, Intermodal and now assumes responsibility for the company’s chemicals, metals, paper and forest products businesses. He worked for 11 years leading the chemicals and fertilizer business. Tim McNulty, who is Vice President of Agricultural and Mineral Products, will continue to lead the balance of the Merchandise portfolio and will report directly to Wallace.

Kenney, a U.S. Army veteran, led CSX’s automotive business, assumes responsibility for CSX’s Intermodal Sales & Marketing as well as continuing to lead the automotive business. She joined CSX in 2011 and has held roles of increasing responsibility, which includes five years in intermodal.

“These changes leverage the experience and success of our proven talent at CSX”, said Wallace. “This team will continue to address the needs of the marketplace and capture the growth opportunities that will drive the next phase of the company’s transformation while delivering unprecedented levels of service and value for our customers.”
