In addition to serving as CSX Corp.'s chief executive officer, E. Hunter Harrison will serve as president of the Class I, according to a proxy statement hedge fund Mantle Ridge LP filed last week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Mantle Ridge, now a CSX shareholder, helped negotiate Harrison's hiring as CSX CEO earlier this year.

The CSX annual meeting will be held June 5 in Richmond, Va., at which time shareholders will be asked to vote on a compensation and reimbursement package for Harrison.
