UP's Duren one of top 15 women in corporate America, magazine says


PINK magazine recently named Union Pacific Railroad Vice President and General Manager-Chemicals Diane Duren to its "Top 15 Women in Business" list.

A national magazine targeted at professional women, PINK annually profiles the "most influential women driving innovation and revenue in corporate America," according to a prepared statement.

Duren made the list for helping create the Express Lane food product unit train during her tenure as UP's VP and GM of agriculture products. The train — which moves perishables from Washington state to New York — tapped a major market opportunity that long had been abandoned by railroads, the magazine said. She also helped UP take advantage of the growing ethanol market by playing a role in the construction of a rail network to support ethanol moves.

Since joining UP in 1985, Duren has held various finance and marketing and sales positions.
