Nathan Brown to Lead Network’s Corporate Strategy and Growth Across its North American Operations

DENVER – April 12, 2024 – OmniTRAX, a comprehensive supply-chain and logistics solutions provider, and the transportation affiliate of The Broe Group, has promoted Nathan Brown to Executive Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development. In Brown’s expanded role, he will report directly to OmniTRAX CEO Dean Piacente and lead the company’s acquisitions, research, strategy, and oversight of OmniTRAX-controlled railroad real estate. Brown began his rail career as an OmniTRAX research analyst and quickly rose through the corporate ranks, most recently serving as Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy.

“Nathan has been an integral part of our network’s rapid growth and has earned this new challenge,” said OmniTRAX CEO Dean Piacente. “As rail continues to power our nation’s evolving supply chains, it’s important that we cultivate new generations of leadership that bring dynamic perspectives to shape our long-term strategy. Nathan adds an analytical, forward-thinking approach that will play a key role in our sustained growth.”

Brown’s appointment builds on record-setting company performance, as the OmniTRAX rail network continues to grow its North American carloads and reach. Since 2021, OmniTRAX has posted an impressive 40% growth increase.

“The rail community is special, and I am fortunate to work with hard-working, dedicated people that selflessly serve our customers and communities each day,” said Nathan Brown. “By listening to customer needs and combining rail service with real estate development, OmniTRAX has brought $5 billion of customers to rail in the past five years alone. We are committed to providing new opportunities in our communities and throughout our network.”

An Idaho native, Brown is a Gonzaga University alumnus and holds a master’s degree in transportation and supply chain management from the University of Denver.
