CSX chief executive passes away

December 20 - E. Hunter Harrison, railway industry veteran and president and ceo of CSX, died on Saturday December 16 in Florida, following unexpectedly severe complications from a recent illness.

The former Canadian National (CN) and Canadian Pacific (CP) railways chief executive was appointed ceo of CSX in March 2017

Credited for dramatic turnarounds at CN and CP, Harrison was known throughout the railroad industry, and was described by CSX as "a larger-than-life figure who brought his remarkable passion, experience and energy in railroading" to the company.

Edward J. Kelly III, chairman of the CSX board of directors, issued a statement on behalf of the board of directors, saying: "With the passing of Hunter Harrison, CSX has suffered a major loss.

"Notwithstanding that loss, the board is confident that Jim Foote, as acting ceo, and the rest of the CSX team will capitalise on the changes that Hunter has made. The board will continue to consider in a deliberative way how best to maximise CSX's performance over the long term."
