Green takes presidential reins at CPR; Ritchie remains CEO


Robert Ritchie has taken off one of his hats at Canadian Pacific Railway. The Class I has appointed Fred Green president, effective today. President and Chief Executive Officer since 1995, Ritchie will continue to serve as CEO.

Most recently executive vice president and chief operating officer, Green will continue to serve as COO. He will be responsible for information services, human resources, industrial and government relations, communications, public affairs, operations and marketing. Since joining CPR in 1978, Green has held various senior management positions in operations and marketing.

“The results that have been achieved in terms of increased operational capacity, customer response, improved productivity and safety are due to [Green’s] proven ability to build high-impact teams that have enhanced performance,” said CPR Chairman J.E. Newall in a prepared statement.
