CN's Ruest named to International Maritime Hall of Fame (5/15/2017)


CN Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer JJ Ruest has been inducted into the International Maritime Hall of Fame, the Class I announced last week.

Ruest, who oversees CN's efforts to grow the railroad's business and strengthen its relationships with supply chain partners, was inducted at a ceremony last week in New York City.

"Transportation and logistics is a team sport and this honor recognizes CN's collaboration with our outstanding maritime supply chain partners," said Ruest in a press release. "CN has the best port connections in North America and our commitment to our customers is second to none. Working together and constantly innovating, we are able to move goods to market efficiently across the world."

The Maritime Association of the Port of New York and New Jersey founded the Hall of Fame in 1993 to recognize maritime visionaries, who through excellence in their company, organization or services, best exemplify the qualities of futuristic thinking that will guide the maritime industry in the 21st century, the press release stated.
