CSX yesterday announced the appointments of Kevin Boone as executive vice president and chief financial officer, and Jamie Boychuk as EVP of operations.

Boone was named interim CFO in May. He joined CSX in 2017 as VP of corporate affairs and chief investor relations officer, then was appointed VP of marketing and strategy to lead research and data analysis to advance growth strategies. He has more than 18 years of experience in finance, mergers and acquisitions, and accounting, primarily focused on the transportation and industrial sectors.

“Kevin’s strong and diverse finance background will be invaluable as we strive to operate efficiently and create shareholder value," said CSX President and Chief Executive Officer James Foote in a press release.

Boychuk joined CSX in 2017, and served as assistant VP of transportation support, VP of scheduled railroading and, most recently, senior VP of network operations, mechanical, engineering and intermodal operations. He joined CSX after working for CN for 20 years.

“Jamie has demonstrated great skill in producing record-setting results in service and efficiency gains throughout his over 20-year railroad operating career,” Foote said.

Ed Harris, who previously led the Class I's operations function, will continue as EVP with a combination of operating and general executive duties, CSX officials said in a press release.

Harris, who joined CSX in January 2018 as EVP of operations, will work with Boychuk to help strengthen the Class I's leadership in the rail industry, Foote added.

In his new role, Harris will continue to train, coach mentor operations leadership while maintaining oversight of several key functional areas, including safety, performance metrics and operational planning.
