Ontario Northland Transportation Commission appoints Carmichael president, CEO


The Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (ONTC) recently named Steve Carmichael president and chief executive officer. He most recently served as acting president.

Carmichael previously held a number of management positions in various ONTC business units, including vice president of rail services, a position responsible for overseeing the company's freight- and passenger-rail operations. He currently serves as chairman of Nipissing University's board and a member of the Railway Association of Canada's safety and operations management committee.

"[Carmichael] has a wide breadth of experience on the rail side of operations, as well as in telecommunications, labor relations, administration and finance," said ONTC Chairman Ted Hargreaves in a prepared statement.

ONTC operates the 836-mile Ontario Northland Railway, and Northlander, Little Bear and Polar Bear Express passenger trains, and provides scheduled and charter motor coach, and telecommunication services.
