Director of International Border Operations - Kansas City Southern Railroad

Arthuro Dominguez is a 42-year veteran railroader beginning his career with the Texas Mexican Railway Company (Tex Mex) in Laredo. In 1996, when the Mexican government took steps to privatize its rail system, Dominguez was assigned to the due diligence team that conducted the study of Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Mexico (FNM), and eventually, Transportacion Ferroviaria Mexicana S.A. de C.V. (TFM), the first major privately owned railroad in Mexico came into being. While working for TFM, he supervised the transition of operations in the Ports Veracruz and Matamoros from the government-owned FNM to the newly-founded TFM or what is now known as the Kansas City Southern de Mexico (KCSM).

In 2005, during his tenure as manager of administration for Tex Mex, the Kansas City Southern acquired the railroad and Dominguez was charged with overseeing the administrative transition from the Texas Mexican Railway based out of The Woodlands, TX to the Kansas City Southern Railway. In 2010, he was transferred back to Laredo where he is now the director of international border operations.

Some of his past accomplishments include member of the board of directors of the Port Terminal Railroad in Houston, advisory board of St. Phillips College in San Antonio, advisory board of Laredo Community College, technical committee member of the Laredo Metropolitan Planning Organization, member of the City of Alice Transportation Committee, past president of the American Railway Development Association in Chicago, treasurer of the Webb County Rural Rail District and various positions in several non-profit and civic organizations.
