CN's Murray first woman to chair Railway Association of Canada (5/14/2020)


The Railway Association of Canada (RAC) announced yesterday its board has elected Fiona Murray chairperson. Murray, vice president of public and government affairs at CN, is the first woman to chair the 103-year-old organization's board.

Murray joined CN in 1992, initially working in the public affairs department before moving to positions of increasing responsibility. Her experience and thorough understanding of railroading will be a "great asset" to the association, RAC officials said in a press release.

"Over the last 28 years, I have seen railroads evolve to be more diverse workplaces and I'm proud that my nomination is a testament to that evolution," Murray said. "I will focus my energies ensuring that exemplary governance continues at the board level of the RAC to support the organization in its effective communications and advocacy across the country."
