JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind., Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Commercial Barge Line (ACBL) and its Board of Directors has named Mike Ellis, as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer and a member of its Board of Directors, effective August 17, 2020. Today’s announcement follows an earlier announcement that Mark Knoy will retire from his positions as President and Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board.
