Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) announced the appointments of Bruce Carter and Cynthia Hostetler to its board.

Their appointments expand the number of G&W board directors to 12, 11 of whom are independent directors, company officials said in a press release.

In conjunction with the new appointments, Richard Allert and Hans Michael Norkus have informed the board that they will not stand for re-election when their terms end in May.
