Intermodal industry veteran Prince joins KCS as VP of sales and marketing



Kansas City Southern has recruited a long-time intermodal industry veteran to fill a key executive position. Yesterday, the Class I announced it appointed Theodore Prince vice president of sales and marketing, intermodal and international business unit, effective Sept. 1.

He will be responsible for developing intermodal business in KCS' international intermodal corridor between Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico, and the southeastern U.S. while VP of Sales and Marketing-Automotive Business Unit Michael Smith will focus exclusively on expanding automotive business.

Prince most recently served Optimization Alternatives Ltd. Inc. as senior VP of marketing and sales. He previously held various senior-level operating positions at “K” Line America Inc., including SVP and chief operating officer, and intermodal positions at Conrail. Prince also serves on the boards of the Intermodal Association of North America and the University of Denver's Intermodal Transportation Institute, and is a regularly published author on the transportation and intermodal industries.

“It made sense to split the intermodal and automotive business unit into two areas of concentration, taking advantage of Ted’s nearly 30 years of diverse intermodal expertise, and Michael’s nearly 20 years of transportation and automotive experience,” said KCS Executive VP of Sales and Marketing Daniel Avramovich in a prepared statement.
