Heller, Booth Assume More Responsibilities at Norfolk Southern

A pair of Norfolk Southern employees have assumed additional responsibilities in Norfolk Southern’s intermodal department.

Jeffrey S. Heller, previously vice president intermodal and automotive marketing, is now vice president intermodal and automotive, and will report toAlan H. Shaw, executive vice president and chief marketing officer. Heller will continue responsibility for intermodal and automotive marketing and sales, adding responsibility for intermodal operations and systems.

Cary G. Booth, previously assistant vice president intermodal service development, is now group vice president intermodal operations, and will report to Heller, with responsibility for intermodal terminals, equipment, and service.

In their expanded roles, Heller and Booth are handling the responsibilities formerly conducted by Shaw as the corporation’s previous vice president intermodal operations. “This streamlines our internal processes and puts two of the railroad industry’s top intermodal experts closer to the customers they serve,” Shaw said.

Both changes were effective May 16. Heller and Booth both have offices in Norfolk.

Heller joined Norfolk Southern’s international intermodal group in 1994 after working with container shipping and intermodal companies both in the U.S. and abroad. He was named group vice president international intermodal in 2004 and then vice president of intermodal and automotive marketing, his most recent position, in 2013. Heller holds a degree from Syracuse and completed the executive program atHarvard Business School.

Booth joined Norfolk Southern in 1984 as a management trainee. He served in positions of increasing responsibility in the corporation’s marketing and intermodal departments before being named director intermodal operations East in 1998 and then assistant vice president intermodal service development, his most recent position, in 2006. Booth holds degrees from Washington and Lee University and theUniversity of Virginia.
