CSX names Oglesby to government affairs post; earns 'Best Corporate Citizen' honor


CSX Corp. yesterday announced Rodney Oglesby has been appointed resident vice president of state government affairs for Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York City.

He will oversee the company's interactions with executive and legislative branches, as well as community officials, according to a CSX press release.

Prior to joining CSX, Oglesby was executive director of government relations for the Philadelphia School District. He also served as chief counsel to Pennsylvania State Sen. Anthony Williams, and held positions at United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, General Electric Financial Assurance and Citigroup.

Oglesby will report to Randy Cheetham, CSX's regional VP for state government and community affairs.

Also yesterday, CSX announced it was named one of Corporate Responsibility Magazine's 100 Best Corporate Citizens for 2015, with a ranking of 50 in the company's third appearance on the list. CSX was the only railroad named on the list.

"It's an honor to be named among leading businesses for our commitment to operating responsibly by doing the right thing in the communities we serve, a job that we take very seriously," said Michael Ward, CSX chairman and chief executive officer. "Freight rail plays a critical role in supporting sustainable business by efficiently moving the things that matter, and creating jobs and economic development."

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List measures all Russell 1000 companies  based on 303 publicly-available data points in seven categories, including environment, climate, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy and community support. The ranking is determined on a relative comparison.
