CSX announces senior leadership changes


CSX Corp. today announced the appointments of Mark Wallace as executive vice president of CSX, Kevin Boone as EVP of sales and marketing, and Sean Pelkey as VP and acting chief financial officer.

In his new role, Wallace will focus on special projects and initiatives supporting the president and chief executive officer. Wallace continues to receive treatments for cancer but remains committed to helping deliver on the company’s strategic growth initiatives, according to a CSX press release.

Boone, who most recently served as EVP and CFO, joined the company in September 2017 as a VP responsible for investor relations. He then was appointed VP of marketing and strategy to lead research and data analysis to advance growth strategies. Boone has more than 18 years of experience in finance, mergers and acquisitions, and accounting, primarily focused on the transportation and industrial sectors.

Pelkey joined CSX in 2005, and most recently served as VP of finance and treasury. Pelkey has more than 16 years of experience in finance and capital management, and previously served as AVP of capital markets and investor relations.

"These appointments demonstrate the depth of CSX’s leadership and place us in a position of strength," said CSX President and Chief Executive Officer James Foote. "Kevin's proven track record of implementing and executing successful strategic initiatives will provide strong direction to CSX’s sales and marketing team as we focus on capturing sustainable and profitable growth. Sean’s broad experience at CSX as well as his deep knowledge of our industry will continue to strengthen our financial performance and shareholder value."
