TNW Corp. this week announced two appointments: Andy Scheriger to director of sales and business development for TNW, and Eric Chavez to general manager at the Texas Rock Crusher Railway (TXR).

Prior to his appointment, Scheriger served as GM at TXR. In his new role, he will contribute to TNW's strategic planing and managing sales initiatives and programs. He will oversee customer account coordination; interaction with customers, prospects and customers; and new prospect initiatives.

"His experience in the railroad industry and customer relations will be extremely valuable as we expand our operations and identify better ways to serve our customers," said Wade Hoffman, TNW's vice president of marketing and sales, in a press release.

As Scheriger's successor at TXR, Chavez will be responsible for managing the railroad's daily operations, as well as employee training and development, promoting a safe workplace, fostering community partnerships and providing excellent customer service.

Chavez has more than a decade of railroad experience. Prior to being named GM, he held various positions at TXR, including conductor and engineer, and, for the past five years, trainmaster.

Chavez's experience in the railroad industry, strong customer relationships and involvement in Brownwood will "reinforce TXR's commitment to service and growth," said Jason Gill, TNW's vice president of operations.

Based in Brownwood, Texas, the TXR is owned by TNW, a privately held operator of short lines and logistics centers.
