CSX has made several changes in its sales and marketing leadership team, promoting Farrukh Bezar to Senior Vice President Marketing and Arthur Adams to Vice President Merchandise Sales. Vice President Industrial Products Dean Piacente and Vice President Food and Agricultural Products Tim McNulty are retiring following more than 30 years of service.
Bezar, who joined CSX in May as SVP and Chief Strategy Officer with 25 years’ experience in transportation and logistics, will now lead the railroad’s merchandise marketing groups, in addition to continuing his corporate strategy role.
Adams will be responsible for leading all sales portfolios within the industrial products, food and agriculture, fertilizers and regional sales segments. He will also continue to oversee customer engagement and TRANSFLO services. Adams has been with CSX for 12 years.
“These two senior appointments highlight the company’s intense focus on leveraging its operating model and industry-leading service product to grow the business, especially in the critically important merchandise segment,” CSX said.
Vice President Intermodal and Automotive Maryclare Kenney, Vice President Energy Adam Longson and Vice President Real Estate and Facilities Management Shantel Daviswill continue in their current roles.
