Pamela L. Carter, president of Cummins Distribution Business, has been elected to the board of directors of CSX Corp., where she will serve on the company’s Governance Committee and its Operations and Public Affairs Committee. Based in Jacksonville, Fla., CSX specializes in rail, intermodal and rail-to-truck transload services.
“Pamela Carter brings strong operational experience and insight into regulatory and public policy matters,” says Michael J. Ward, CSX chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We are honored that she has agreed to serve as a director and to help lead the continued growth and success of our company.”
Carter joined Cummins as General Counsel in 1997 after a career in private legal practice and as attorney general for the state of Indiana from 1993-1997, where she was the first African-American woman in the country to be elected to that position.
In 2000, she became general manager of Fleetguard (known as Cummins Filtration today), and she became president of Cummins Filtration in 2005. She moved into her current role in December 2007. She also currently serves on the board of Spectra Energy Corp. and Meijer Inc.
“I am excited and honored to be elected to the board of CSX,” Carter says. “I look forward to doing my part to help the company build on its history of strong performance and industry leadership.”
