Nathan Brown, EVP OmniTRAX

OmniTRAX, an affiliate of The Broe Group, has promoted Nathan Brown to Executive Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development, an expanded role reporting directly to CEO Dean Piacente. Brown will lead the company’s acquisitions, research, strategy and oversight of OmniTRAX-controlled railroad real estate.

Brown began his rail career as an OmniTRAX research analyst and quickly rose through the corporate ranks, most recently serving as Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy. An Idaho native, he is a Gonzaga University alumnus and holds a master’s degree in transportation and supply chain management from the University of Denver. Brown’s appointment “builds on record-setting company performance, as the OmniTRAX rail network continues to grow its North American carloads and reach,” the company said. “Since 2021, OmniTRAX has posted impressive 40% growth”

“Nathan has been an integral part of our network’s rapid growth and has earned this new challenge,” said Piacente. “As rail continues to power our nation’s evolving supply chains, it’s important that we cultivate new generations of leadership that bring dynamic perspectives to shape our long-term strategy. Nathan adds an analytical, forward-thinking approach that will play a key role in our sustained growth.”

“The rail community is special, and I am fortunate to work with hard-working, dedicated people that selflessly serve our customers and communities each day,” said Brown. “By listening to customer needs and combining rail service with real estate development, OmniTRAX has brought $5 billion of customers to rail in the past five years alone. We are committed to providing new opportunities in our communities and throughout our network.”
