Union Pacific Chairman Dick Davidson has retired after 47 years of service

Union Pacific Chairman Dick Davidson has retired after 47 years of service. He began his career at the railroad as a brakeman, and was an operating department manager when partial deregulation took place in 1980. During his 10 years as chairman, Davidson helped launch unprecedented quality control and construction projects to handle growing shipping volume. James Young succeeds Davidson as chairman, and will continue to serve as president and CEO, positions to which he was appointed in 2004. Young is a 29-year UP veteran and has held a variety of management positions, including CFO and COO.
