"We have great confidence in Gretchen and Mitch as they step into their new roles. Gretchen has improved our international business markedly in the past three years. Her focus on metrics and accountability around safety and the environment, improved reliability and clear line of sight of the economic drivers of the business have helped make IPO the engine of the corporation.
