BNSF taps Fox to head engineering; Campbell to succeed Fox


Burlington Northern Santa Fe Sept. 24 named Greg Fox vice president of engineering and Jeff Campbell, vice president, technology services and chief information officer to succeed Fox. Both appointments are effective Oct. 1.


Fox will report to Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Carl Ice; Campbell will report to Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Matthew Rose, and become a member of BNSF's executive team.


Craig Hill, who headed the railroad's engineering functions while BNSF sought a new vice president, will continue to serve as vice president, mechanical and value engineering, and report to Ice.


Fox, who since April 2001 has served as chief information officer, began his railroad career with BNSF in 1984, serving as trainmaster, terminal trainmaster and terminal superintendent. He later held several finance positions, then served as director of information technology, and assistant vice president of information systems services, helping BNSF implement its Transportation Support System and leading e-business initiatives.


"[Fox] has played a major role in helping all departments, both at headquarters and in the field, improve their processes, reporting and management," said Rose in a prepared statement.


Campbell since April 1999 has served BNSF as vice president and chief sourcing officer. He previously served Federal Express, holding various management positions in procurement and supply-chain management. BNSF plans to name Campbell's successor in the near future.


"Under Jeff’s leadership, BNSF has streamlined its sourcing function, adopted new electronic processes and saved hundreds of millions of dollars in the procurement of equipment, materials and supplies during the past three years," said Ice.
