Eastern railroad CSX Corp. said today that it has named Dean M. Piacente, formerly vice president, chemicals, to run its intermodal division. Piacente replaces Bill Clement, who has left the Jacksonville, Fla.-based company.
Clement joined CSX in 1990, and took over the intermodal business in 2010.
In addition, CSX named Clark Robertson vice president, chemicals, and Tim McNulty, vice president, agriculture; all three will report to Fredrik J. Eliasson, executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer.
In a statement, Eliasson said that Piacente's "record of growth, revenue generation, and customer relationships makes him the ideal choice to lead intermodal, which is a significant growth driver for CSX as we work with our trucking partners to convert to rail-based solutions more of the approximately 9 million highway loads in the East that travel 550 miles or more."
