Genesee & Wyoming Appoints Eddie Aston as UK/Europe Region CEO.
“Eddie is a seasoned business leader with deep experience in logistics as well as business transformation,” said G&W Chief Executive Officer Jack Hellmann. “He is a highly energetic leader who is intensely focused on customers and will fit in well with G&W’s culture. We are excited for him to lead the next phase of G&W’s business transformation in the UK and continental Europe.”
Aston succeeds G&W’s Gary Long, who has served as UK/Europe Region CEO since 2017 and is transitioning back to the United States as planned. “Gary successfully transformed our UK business to provide our customers with industry-leading rail, road and terminals services, led a major technology initiative that will transform our customer experience in the UK, all while delivering world-class safety results,” Hellmann said. “I want to thank Gary and our entire UK/Europe team for positioning the business for long-term success, particularly amidst the extraordinary challenges of the pandemic.”
