KCS Announces Two Sales and Marketing Appointments

Kansas City Southern (KCS) has appointed Darin Selby vice president intermodal operations and Ginger Adamiak vice president sales and marketing for the energy and short line relations business unit. Selby and Adamiak will report to Brain Hancock, vice president and chief marketing officer.

Selby, who joined KCS in 2001 as assistant trainmaster, has more than 24 years of railroad experience in sales and marketing, customer service and transportation. Most recently, he served as vice president sales and marketing for the energy business unit, also overseeing short line partner relations. Before joining KCS, he worked for eight years at Central Kansas Railway.

He earned a master of business administration and a bachelor of science in business management from Emporia State University.

Selby replaces Morris Godwin, who announced that he will retire, effective September 1. Goodwin joined KCS in 2007 with more than 30 years of transportation experience, mostly in the intermodal business.  In 2012, he was promoted to his current role as vice president intermodal operations.  Prior to joining KCS, he worked for Norfolk Southern, American President Lines, Unicon International, Trism Specialty Carriers and Pacer Stacktrain. Goodwin will continue to serve as an advisor until his retirement.

Adamiak, who joined KCS in 2006 as director investor relations, has 30 years of experience in sales and marketing, banking, treasury, investor relations, structured financing, leasing and market analysis, including 20 years in transportation.  In 2011, she was promoted to assistant vice president marketing, and in 2015, she was named assistant vice president finance. Before joining KCS, Adamiak spent nine years with GATX Corporation and held financial positions with Household International and Continental Bank. 

Adamiak earned a master of business administration in finance and economics from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“Morris has laid a foundation of excellence for intermodal operations and his expertise will be missed. We wish him and his wife the very best in retirement,” said Hancock. “Both Ginger and Darin bring a wealth of cross-functional experience and proven performance to their new roles. I am confident that they will lead their respective teams well, as we continue to focus on our goal of customer-focused service.”
