CN yesterday announced Remi Lalonde has been appointed executive vice president and chief commercial officer, effective April 24. He will succeed Doug MacDonald, who is retiring from CN following a 35-year career.

Since his arrival at CN in January, Lalonde has been embedded in CN's operations, gaining first-hand experience with scheduled railroading and executing CN's "Make the Plan, Run the Plan, Sell the Plan" model, CN officials said in a press release.

Lalonde has been meeting customers and working with MacDonald to ensure a seamless transition to the commercial side of the company, they said.

Lalonde's "diverse experience and deep understanding of North American and global supply chains will bring important perspective as we focus our efforts on accelerating sustainable, profitable growth," said CN President and CEO Tracy Robinson.

Robinson also thanked MacDonald for his service to CN.

"His leadership, pragmatism and expertise contributed meaningfully to our transition to the scheduled operating model and provided us with a clear path forward for growth. We wish him the very best in his retirement," she said.
