Kansas City Southern recently promoted Darin Selby from assistant vice president to vice president of energy markets and short line partner relations.
He will be responsible for the coal business unit, short-line relations and business development in emerging energy markets, such as crude oil, frac sand and alternative energy sources.
Selby, who has 20 years of transportation experience, was appointed AVP of coal and short line partner relations in 2009. His energy market responsibilities were expanded in 2011.
Selby joined KCS in 2001 as an assistant trainmaster in Wylie, Texas, and later served as assistant director of the Customer Service Center in Shreveport, La. and director of the Account Management Center in Kansas City, Mo. He previously held various positions with OmniTRAX Inc.
"Darin understands the North American energy market well and has been very effective in growing that area of the business," said KCS Executive VP of Sales and Marketing Patrick Ottensmeyer in a prepared statement.
