NS Seen as Likely to Move HQ to Atlanta

Norfolk Southern appears poised to moves its corporate headquarters to Atlanta a video made by CEO James Squires suggests.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk said the video is intended for employees, but has not been posted on the NS website.

NS is currently based in Norfolk, but has numerous offices in Atlanta, including its operational headquarters.

Reports have circulated for more than a month that NS is eyeing moving from Norfolk to Atlanta, but the company has declined to confirm it is considering that other than to say it is developing a new long-range plan with several options, including the “possibility of consolidating headquarters into a single location.”

That statement did not describe any locations.

The Norfolk newspaper said the video featuring Squires “makes clear that an Atlanta move is now front-and-center,” with a potential timetable in place for when employees would make the move.

“We are considering the consolidation of our Norfolk headquarters into Atlanta, but only if many aspects can be resolved to make sense for Norfolk Southern, its shareholders, and its employees,” Squires said in a statement containing a link to the nearly five-minute video.
