The group would carry out functions currently performed by Canadian Pacific Ltd. — CPR, along with four other CP business units, plans to spin off from the corporation in fall, pending shareholder approval.
The railroad named Paul Bell vice president investor relations, and his duties will include building and managing relationships with current and prospective retail and institutional shareholders, analysts and other capital-market professionals.
Bell has held several senior executive positions at CPR — most recently vice president E-Business — launching and leading various transportation efficiency and service initiatives.
