Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (GWI) has appointed Paula Henry senior vice president of the Rocky Mountain Region and president of Utah Railway Co. to succeed James Davis, who retired. Henry most recently was chief operating officer of Tacoma Rail.
A more than 40-year rail industry veteran, Davis joined GWI subsidiary Rail Link Inc. in 1996 and became general manager of Utah Railway after GWI acquired the short line in 2002. Later, he was named SVP of the Utah Region, which became the Rocky Mountain Region last year.
GWI owns and operates regionals and short lines in the United States, Canada and Australia, and owns a minority interest in a Bolivian railroad.
