The Railway Association of Canada (RAC) has named Marc Brazeau as president and chief executive officer.

Brazeau, who will begin his new job on July 3, succeeds Michael Bourque, who was the association's president and CEO from April 2012 to November 2017, according to an RAC press release.

"Marc brings to this position a diverse background of business experience, leadership and advocacy which will help to ensure RAC remains the voice of Canada's railway industry," said Sean Finn, executive vice president of corporate services and chief legal officer at CN, and RAC chairman. "Most importantly, Marc has demonstrated the ability to effectively lead a national industry association. We're confident that his previous responsibilities and experience have prepared him for this role, and puts him in an excellent position to succeed."

Brazeau has more than 20 years of transportation industry association experience. From 1995 to 2015, he served as president and CEO of the Automotive Industries Association of Canada. Since May 2015, he has been vice president of sales and marketing at Uni-Select.

"Railways are the backbone of Canada's world-class supply chain, as well as a safe and sustainable option for transporting goods and passengers," said Brazeau. "I am looking forward to leading an association that's known as an authority on issues related to Canada's railway industry, and as a trusted advocate for its members."
