CSXT assigns five execs to operating department positions

Today, CSX Transportation announced it recently made five operations department appointments. The railroad named Mike Pendergrass vice president-transportation south; Bill Braman, Albany Division manager; Rod Workman, Atlanta Division manager; Bob Frulla, Jacksonville Division manager; and David Hamby; Atlanta Division assistant manager.

A CSXT employee since 1989, Pendergrass most recently served as assistant VP of labor relations. He previously was named general manager of crew management and general manager-Atlanta Service Lane.

Most recently AVP of service design, Braman has worked for CSXT and its predecessor railroads more than 30 years, including stints as director of product development, managing director of multimodal operations and AVP-automotive operations.

Meanwhile, Workman — formerly director of merchandise design — is returning to the Atlanta Division. He previously served as the division’s superintendent of operations before becoming the railroad’s GM of yards and terminals.

A 15-year CSXT veteran, Frulla previously was appointed director-curfew planning and GM of network operations.

Finally, Hamby – who joined CSXT predecessor Seaboard Coast Line in 1978 — previously served as the Atlanta Division’s terminal superintendent and line of road superintendent.
