Norfolk Southern names Shaw to succeed Seale as CMO


Norfolk Southern Corp. has named Alan Shaw executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Wick Moorman announced yesterday.

Effective Friday, Shaw succeeds Donald Seale, who retired after 39 years in management positions in NS' marketing division. Shaw will report to NS President James Squires.

"Norfolk Southern's ongoing goal is to provide reliable rail services and market access that support our shippers and receivers as leaders in their business sectors,” Moorman said in a press release. “Alan has the experience and market perspective to ensure that our valued customer partnerships grow even stronger."

Shaw joined NS in 1994 and has held positions in the finance and marketing departments. He served as group VP of coal marketing and group VP of chemicals before being named VP of intermodal operations, his current position, in 2013.

Reporting to him in his new role will be NS' merchandise, intermodal and coal marketing organizations; teams that manage shipping options such as short-line connections and the transload network; real estate services; and the corporation’s industrial development services for companies that want to locate and expand rail-served businesses.
