FEC Announces Appointment to VP & Controller Position
Florida East Coast Industries, Inc. announced that Amy Bramlitt, Vice President & Chief Financial Officer of Florida East Coast Railway, LLC ("FECR"), will assume additional responsibilities of FECI Vice President & Controller.
The FECI corporate accounting function will now report to Amy Bramlitt.
Daniel H. Popky, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer of Florida East Coast Industries, stated, "Over the past few years, FECI has moved from four operating subsidiaries to two and, as a result, I believe it is now appropriate, with the closing of the Codina acquisition and Mark Leininger's resignation, to consolidate some of the holding company functions. Amy's combination of strong technical, operational and strategic skills have greatly benefited FECR since she joined the Railway in 2002, and her solid accounting background makes her well suited to assume responsibility for the corporate accounting functions."
Amy Bramlitt joined FECR in March 2002 as Vice President & Controller and was promoted to Chief Financial Officer in November 2004. Prior to joining FECR, Amy's work experience included positions with CSX Transportation and Ernst & Young. Amy is a Certified Public Accountant.
Florida East Coast Industries also announced today that Mark Leininger, Vice President & Controller, has resigned to pursue a career in academia. Mark plans to return to school to obtain his Masters in Business Administration and subsequently pursue a full time position as a college professor. Mark has been part of the adjunct faculty at Flagler College in St. Augustine since 2003.
Mr. Popky added, "I would like to thank Mark for his significant contributions to FECI since joining the Company in 1999. In addition to assisting FECI and our subsidiaries in the development and execution of our operating plans, which included the spin-off from The St. Joe Company, Mark has strengthened the financial controls and disclosures. We wish Mark much success in his future endeavors."
