Jason Reiner To Head Norfolk Southern Industrial Development; Newell Baker Retires

Reiner began as a co-op student in the industrial development engineering department at Norfolk Southern (then Southern Railway) while attending Virginia Tech in 1978. Upon graduation with a civil engineering degree, he joined the company's engineering department in 1982. He joined the industrial development department in 1990 as a development engineer and became director industrial development in 2008.  He will be headquartered in Atlanta and will report to Robert E. Martinez, vice president business development.

Baker, a civil engineering graduate of North Carolina State University, joined Norfolk Southern's engineering department in 1973 and served in several positions of increasing responsibility, becoming assistant vice president industrial development in 2008.

"Newell has done an extraordinary job during his tenure as AVP, perhaps most prominently in achieving record back-to-back project growth for each of the five years during which he has held that job," said Martinez. "I've no doubt, based on his experience and expertise, that Jason Reiner will attain a comparable level of accomplishment and keep NS industrial development as the benchmark in the rail industry."

Norfolk Southern works with state and local economic development authorities on projects involving site location and development of infrastructure to connect customers to its rail system and provides free and confidential plant location services, including industrial park planning, site layout, track design, and logistics assistance. During the past 10 years, Norfolk Southern's Industrial Development Department has participated in the location or expansion of 1,021 facilities, representing an investment of $28.7 billion by NS customers and generating more than 48,000 jobs in Norfolk Southern's territory.

Norfolk Southern Corporation is one of the nation's premier transportation companies. Its Norfolk Southern Railway Company subsidiary operates approximately 20,000 route miles in 22 states and the District of Columbia, serves every major container port in the eastern United States, and provides efficient connections to other rail carriers. Norfolk Southern operates the most extensive intermodal network in the East and is a major transporter of coal, automotive, and industrial products.
