To Our Customers,

As we continue to evaluate our customers' needs, we will be consolidating our business groups from four to three: Bulk, Industrial and Premium. The changes are effective January 1, 2020.

  • Bulk (formerly Agricultural Products) will add coal and petroleum coke markets to its portfolio and will be led by Brad Thrasher.
  • Industrial will add sand, petroleum and LPG markets to its portfolio and will continue to be led by Jacque Bendon.
  • Premium will continue to be led by Jason Hess.

In other related changes, Linda Brandl will transition to Vice President - Marketing & Sales Operations and will lead teams including Strategy, Planning & Communications; Economic and Industrial Development; Short Line & Interline; Shipment Quality and Technology.

This new structure will allow us to better serve our customers while helping Union Pacific remain agile to market conditions. I am excited about the great work the entire Union Pacific team is doing to deliver safe and reliable service to our customers.
