Yesterday, Union Pacific Corp. appointed Lynden Tennison senior vice president and chief information officer; Lance Fritz, VP of the northern region; Doug Glass, VP and general manager of energy; and James Young, board member to fill vacancies created by retiring officers.

Most recently VP and chief technology officer, Tennison succeeds L. Merill Bryan, Jr., who recently ended his 38-year UP career. Since joining UP in 1992, Tennison has served in various management capacities.

Most recently VP and GM of energy, Fritz succeeds Mike Kelly, who retired after serving UP for 40 years. Fritz has served in various management capacities since joining UP in 2000.

Most recently senior assistant VP of business development, Glass succeeds Fritz. Since joining UP in 1976, Glass has served various management-level stints.

Finally, Young — Union Pacific Railroad's president and chief operating officer since January 2004 — has served UP for the past 27 years in various management and senior management positions, including VP of re-engineering and design, VP of customer service planning and quality, SVP and treasurer, SVP of finance and controller, and executive VP of finance and chief financial officer.

Young succeeds former director and Vice Chairman Ivor "Ike" Evans as UP's 11th board member. Evans retired last month, ending his six-and-a-half year UP tenure.
