KCS creates international personnel services group to govern human resources in the United States and Mexico



As owner of one railroad in the United States and one in Mexico, Kansas City Southern is restructuring its human resources department and reorganizing safety, health and operating practice functions into a new international personnel services group to manage those activities on both sides of the border.

KCS appointed Kevin McIntosh assistant vice president of personnel services to head the group, and assigned regulatory compliance and training responsibilities to Associate General Counsel Kayden Howard.

McIntosh will oversee all international personnel services functions, as well as The Kansas City Southern Railway Co.’s (KCSR) safety, health and operating practice functions. Most recently general director of safety, health and operating practices, he has held various transportation posts — including Kansas City terminal superintendent, trainmaster, assistant trainmaster and conductor — and human resources and accounting positions.

In addition, KCS named J. Cory Sullivan general director of personnel services and Dennis Marzec, general director of safety and operating practices.

Sullivan, who will manage international personnel service functions, most recently served as manager of Kansas City Power & Light’s customer services division. She previously held various human resource administrative positions with Sprint and VisionQuest Marketing Services.

Marzec, who will manage KCSR’s safety initiatives, most recently served as director of rules and operating practices. He previously held various operating positions, including division superintendent and Shreveport, La., terminal superintendent.
