Waterstone assessed the railroad's leadership, organizational culture, corporate responsibility and innovation, and "was impressed with CN's successful transformation from the rail industry laggard to today's rail industry leader," CN officials said in a prepared statement.
"CN's business agenda is shaped by what the company stands for: creating value for its customers and shareholders, delivering goods safely and sustainably, supporting the economies we serve, and connecting strongly with our employees," said President and Chief Executive Officer Claude Mongeau. "CN has experienced a remarkable transformational journey and will continue to pursue its role as a true backbone of the economy."
