Griffith will serve as a coordinating link between operations, and sales and marketing, and will be responsible for overseeing the allocation of resources, crews and locomotives. He will report to Pat Daly, vice president-network operations.
"Ray brings a vast amount of coal-operations expertise to this position,"
