Norfolk-based Norfolk Southern Corp. announced on Tuesday that its board of directors has elected Frank Voyack as the company’s vice president of government relations, effective May 1. Voyack succeeds Marque Ledoux, who is retiring after 18 years with the Fortune 500 freight railroad.
In his new role, Voyack will lead Norfolk Southern’s efforts in Washington, D.C., overseeing the railroad’s federal, state and local government relations. Voyack joined Norfolk Southern in 2008 and most recently served as assistant vice president of government relations. Voyack is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and also holds a master’s from Georgetown University.
“We look forward to Frank’s leadership of our government relations efforts,” said Vanessa Allen Sutherland, Norfolk Southern executive vice president and chief legal officer, in a statement. “He knows NS well and will continue our tradition of being bipartisan, steady and proactive.”
