Norfolk Southern Corp. has named Floyd Hudson vice president of transportation.

Previously, Hudson was general manager of the railroad’s southern region. He succeeds Hunt Cary, who is departing the company, NS officials said in a press release.

Hudson joined NS as a management trainee in 2004 and progressed through various operations in field leadership roles of increasing responsibility in several locations across the NS network. He has led both the southern and northern regions and spent a year on a rotational assignment as chief of staff to Chairman and CEO Jim Squires.

Hudson played a central role in executing NS’s precision scheduled railroading operating plan known as TOP21, including the conversion of hump yards, consolidation and reorganization of operating divisions, and modernization of field processes, said NS Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Cindy Sanborn.

"Floyd has a deep understanding of our network, extensive operations leadership experience and an excellent enterprise perspective on the business as a whole," said Sanborn.
