CSX appointed Quintin Kendall to vice president, state government and community affairs. He succeeds Michael O'Malley, who was recently named head of the company's Purchasing and Materials group.
Currently, Kendall serves as regional vice president for state government affairs for the mid-Atlantic region, generating substantial support for major infrastructure investment projects, including the National Gateway. In addition, Kendall coordinated company-wide efforts to broaden recognition of the benefits of freight rail and led CSX efforts to support growth at the Port of Virginia.
“Quintin has built credibility among policymakers as a trusted partner and effective advocate for balanced solutions,” said Ellen Fitzsimmons, CSX executive vice president of law and public affairs. “He brings extensive community relations, policy, political and management experience to his new role.”
