FECR names Biscan AVP of sales; RailAmerica appoints Preslar CFO

Yesterday, Florida East Coast Railway L.L.C. (FECR) announced it appointed Todd Biscan assistant vice president of sales.

Most recently executive vice president and CFO for Cott Corp., Preslar has more than 25 years' experience in corporate finance, including 12 years as a CFO of publicly traded companies. He previously served as VP and CFO for Lance Inc.
