Jonaitis, LeDune assume new posts at Indiana Rail Road

The Indiana Rail Road Co. (INRD) has promoted Brian Jonaitis to director of sales and Shae LeDune to executive assistant to the president.

Most recently manager of sales, Jonaitis now will be responsible for overseeing INRD's sales and marketing staff, and managing more than 20 customer accounts on his own. He has been instrumental in developing business at the regional's new transload facility in Odon, Ind., and truck-to-rail transload center near downtown Indianapolis, INRD officials said in a press release.

Jonaitis joined INRD's sales and marketing staff in 2005 after a two-year stint with trucking firm Knight Transportation, where he gained personnel management, operations and sales experience.

LeDune now is in charge of INRD's community grant program, which supports in-classroom education and public safety endeavors throughout the railroad's operating territory. She also will assume additional leadership roles at INRD's Indianapolis headquarters, including administrative staff and office management, and continue to serve as executive assistant to President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Hoback.

"Her efforts in the past year to coordinate the grand opening of our Indianapolis Intermodal Terminal, Odon Transload and Locomotive Maintenance Facility, all the while managing a lengthy list of corporate administrative duties, have shown how invaluable she is to this company," said Hoback.
