Union Pacific Railroad Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Rob Knight has made Institutional Investor magazine's "Best CFO" list for the sixth consecutive year.

He is listed on the 2019 All-America Executive Team list of airfreight and surface transportation companies. Knight topped Institutional Investor's Best CFO list in the buy-side category of the combined airfreight and surface transportation sector.

Knight began his UP career in 1980 and since has held various positions, including VP and general manager-energy, VP and general manager-automotive and senior VP of finance. He is a board member for Grupo Ferroviario Mexicano and TTX Co.

"Being recognized Best CFO by Institutional Investor for six years in a row is truly an honor recognizing our team's unrelenting focus on driving shareholder value," Knight said in a press release. "We are committed to rewarding shareholders through responsible capital management, dividends and share repurchases."

The magazine has recognized people and firms in the financial services industry for more than 30 years. Best CFO rankings are determined by Institutional Investor's annual survey of the country's top analysts and portfolio managers. Other CFOs recognized on the latest list include Old Dominion Freight Line's Adam Satterfield and J.B. Hunt Transport Services' David Mee.
