“Keith joins CP after a very successful operating career where he rose from a management trainee in the operations department at Burlington Northern in 1992 to becoming EVP & COO at CN in 2010,” said Hunter Harrison. “I have worked with many talented operating people in this industry over the last four decades and Keith is by far one of the best young operating talents that I have ever seen.

“Canadian Pacific recently began its transformational journey to becoming the best railroad in North America and we look forward to benefiting from Keith’s strong leadership and operational expertise as we move forward.”

“I am thrilled to be joining CP during this historic time in its turnaround story,” said Keith Creel. “I worked for Hunter for many years and am proud to be working alongside him once again. I am also proud to be leading an outstanding team in sales and marketing and operations that I know to be exceptionally talented railroaders. I am confident that, together, we will continue down the path that has already begun to restore superior customer service and operational excellence at CP.”

Litigation Ended

CN (Canadian National Railway Company) said that it had settled its differences with CP and Hunter Harrison. The settlement ends the outstanding litigation between CN and CP before the Federal Court in Chicago, Illinois.

As part of the settlement, CP has undertaken not to hire certain CN employees until 31st December 2016. Other terms of the settlement remain confidential.
