Ontario Northland has tapped Drew Duquette to serve as vice president of transportation effective July 6, the railroad announced late last week.

Most recently, Duquette worked for Canadian Pacific, where he served in a number of senior roles, including as superintendent of southwestern Ontario. At Ontario Northland, he will succeed Grant Bailey, who is retiring.

"Drew is a strategic leader with exceptional railway experience," said Corina Moore, president and chief executive officer of Ontario Northland, in a press release. "I am confident that his strong skill set will continue to improve and expand our rail transportation services."

Duquette will be responsible for strategic leadership that will shape company policy and culture. He also will oversee operating and capital budgets for freight rail, mechanical infrastructure and passenger- and freight-car remanufacturing.

During his 35-year career in railroading, he has held a variety of positions, including rail traffic controller, train master and management roles responsible for preventative maintenance and major infrastructure projects.
