On Dec. 12, CSX Corp. announced Robert Grassi will retire as president and chief executive officer of CSX World Terminals (CSXWT), effective Dec. 31. CSX named CSX Corp. Senior Vice President-Corporate Services Andrew Fogarty as Grassi's successor.

Prior to CSXWT, Grassi served Sea-Land Service Inc. for 22 years in various positions, including SVP of finance and planning, and chief financial officer.
