Women Executive Network names CP's O'Hagan one of Canada's 'most powerful' female executives


Women Executive Network (WXN) recently named Canadian Pacific Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Jane O'Hagan one of Canada's "Top 100 Most Powerful Women" for 2012.

The award, which was presented in the corporate executives category, recognizes the professional achievements of women who hold senior positions in Canadian publicly traded or privately owned companies, pension funds and cooperatives.

O'Hagan is a founding member of CP's Women on Track, a group created to foster an environment that facilitates mentoring, communications, learning, and connecting with women across the Class I's network.

She began her CP career in the sales and marketing group before establishing and operating a successful consultancy for several years in the United States and Canada. O'Hagan rejoined CP in 2002 as assistant VP of strategy and research. Over the past eight years, she has been promoted into positions of increased scope and responsibility, including yield management, product design, corporate communications and public affairs, government affairs and Canadian Pacific Logistics Services.

"Jane is a high-performance professional who plays a critical role in leading CP into the future," said CP President and Chief Executive Officer E. Hunter Harrison in a prepared statement. "She is well respected by all of her colleagues and customers alike."

Founded in 1997, WXN is dedicated to the advancement and recognition of women in management, executive, professional and board roles.
