CP adds board members; BART elects officers


Yesterday, Canadian Pacific appointed former senior Class I executives Tony Ingram and Edmond Harris to its board.

Ingram, who retired in 2009 as CSX Transportation’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, has 38 years of rail experience. Prior to joining CSXT in 2004, he served Norfolk Southern Railway for 33 years in various posts, including senior vice president of transportation network and mechanical.

Harris has 44 years of railroading experience. He most recently served as a senior railroad adviser to Global Infrastructure Partners, an independent fund that invests in worldwide infrastructure assets. This year, Harris was retained as a consultant to CP to support the implementation of the redefinition of rail yard operations process. The contract expired upon his appointment to CP’s board. From 2010 to 2011, he also served as chief operations officer of Canadian Pacific. Prior to joining CP, Harris served CN in a number of positions with increasing responsibility, including EVP of operations and chief transportation officer.

Meanwhile Bay Area Rapid Transit’s (BART) board has elected John McPartland president and Tom Radulovich, vice president.
