OmniTRAX Inc. has promoted Brian Ward to senior vice president of marketing, development and transload, and named Jeff Goutcher senior VP of sales.

The new appointments, effective immediately, support OmniTRAX growth and service objectives, company officials said in a press release.

Ward's promotion follows his service as president of OmniTRAX affiliate Winchester and Western Railroad.
