Moorman to Step Down as NS Chair on Oct. 1

Norfolk Southern announced on Tuesday that Charles W. “Wick” Moorman will step down as executive chairman of the board of directors on Oct. 1 and retire as an NS employee on Dec. 31.

Moorman will serve as senior adviser to NS President and CEO James A. Squares until the end of this year.

“I speak for the 30,000-strong Norfolk Southern team in expressing our gratitude for Wick’s leadership, friendship, and vision over some of the most remarkable years in Norfolk Southern’s history,” Squires said in a statement. “Thanks in great part to him, Norfolk Southern and the railroad industry are far more modern in our thinking, more technologically advanced in our operations, and more thoughtful in managing our footprint for our business partners and those we serve.”

“Simply put, Wick’s imprint is unique and indelible,” said Steven F. Leer, the NS lead independent director. “It is my great honor, on behalf of Norfolk Southern’s entire board, to offer congratulations and best wishes to Wick and his family.”
