CHICAGO – Iowa Pacific Holdings LLC has appointed Timothy J. Hammond as regional vice president of operations for its Permian Basin Railways unit, effective Nov. 10. He will report to Mike McConville, executive vice president of operations. He will oversee all aspects of operations for the Texas – New Mexico Railroad and the West Texas & Lubbock Railway.

Hammond comes to Iowa Pacific from Railserve Inc. where he served as regional leader.
His career includes previous operating management positions with short lines and CSX Transportation.

Iowa Pacific has also appointed Kurtis Lindsey as director of Permian Basin Logistics, effective immediately. He reports to Steve Gregory, executive vice president of marketing. He is responsible for customer facility planning on the two railroads as well as managing all aspects of local customer relationships.

Lindsey was previously general superintendent of the Texas – New Mexico Railroad. His six-year career with Iowa Pacific also includes operating positions at the San Luis & Rio Grande Railroad.

“These positions reflect an expansion of our management focus in the Permian Basin and highlight our commitment to customer service and business development,” says Ed Ellis, President of Iowa Pacific.

Iowa Pacific owns two railroads in the Permian Basin, the 111-mile Texas-New Mexico Railroad and the 140-mile West Texas and Lubbock Railway. The two railroads have enjoyed a surge in traffic related to oil shale drilling and crude-by-rail. This has resulted in a doubling of carloads since 2012, with just fewer than 40,000 carloads for the 12 months ended September 2014.
