CSX Transportation has appointed Bob Frulla vice president of transportation-Northern Region to succeed Gary Bethel, who is retiring after a 43-year CSX career.
Most recently a division manager in Huntington, W.Va., Frulla will report to VP and Chief Transportation Officer Cindy Sanborn and be responsible for overseeing operations in Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, New York and Ohio. A CSX employee for more than two decades, he previously served as division manager in Jacksonville, Fla., and Atlanta, and has managed network operations in Jacksonville.
"Bob has been an outstanding leader throughout his career at CSX," said Sanborn in a press release. "Under his management, we have significantly grown our local presence in key geographies, and we look forward to applying that expertise to the entire Northern Region."
Bethel early in his career served in several front-line positions such as locomotive engineer, terminal trainmaster and terminal superintendent, and later was division manager in Atlanta, Indianapolis and Jacksonville.
"Gary is well known throughout the CSX network as a dynamic leader and trusted mentor," said Sanborn. "His unwavering commitment and strategic guidance have been tremendous assets that will certainly be missed."
