Norfolk Southern Corp. on Wednesday said it named Amy Miles non-executive chairwoman, effective May 1.

The Atlanta freight railroad said Ms. Miles, a board member since 2014, succeeds James Squires, who last month announced plans to retire as chairman and chief executive on that date.

Norfolk Southern said Alan Shaw, who succeeded Mr. Squires as president last month, will join the board when he assumes the CEO post on May 1, increasing the size of the board to 14 members.

Mr. Squires will remain a director following his retirement, the company said.
