KCS appoints Fisk to succeed retiring VP/CMO Sizemore


On June 17, Kansas City Southern named James Fisk vice president and chief mechanical officer to succeed Douglas Sizemore, who is retiring.

A fourth-generation railroader with more than 30 years' rail-industry experience, Fisk most recently served National Railway Equipment Co. as president and chief operating officer. He previously served Wisconsin Central Ltd. as executive vice president.

A 39-year railroad veteran and KCS employee since 1999, Sizemore will remain at the railroad through June to assist with the transition.

Sizemore began his career with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, then served as a consultant in Europe during British Rail's privatization, and in Mexico during KCS' and Grupo TMM S.A. de C.V.'s bid for TFM S.A. de C.V. He also served Amtrak and ALSTOM Corp. in various capacities.

"Doug and I have a long history together in the railroad business going back to our time at Santa Fe, as well as at KCS," said Michael Haverty, KCS chairman, president and chief executive officer, in a prepared statement. "[He] is one of the finest railroaders with whom I have had the privilege to work … We wish him all the best in his retirement."
