Canadian Pacific's Dodge to retire in March 2004


Longtime Canadian Pacific Railway exec Ed Dodge plans to retire next spring.

With 35 years of service, CPR's current executive vice president and chief operating officer has held executive positions in a broad range of operations and marketing and sales areas within the railroad, both in Canada and the United States.

"Ed Dodge has brought integrity, energy and the relentless pursuit of improved safety and productivity throughout the company, with outstanding results," said CPR President and Chief Executive Officer Rob Ritchie in a Nov. 17 prepared statement. "He has made a significant contribution to CPR's success as one of North America's most innovative railways."

Dodge, who will step down in March 2004, will be replaced by another longtime CPR exec: Fred Green. Effective Jan. 1, Green will begin serving as executive vice president, operations and marketing. He'll report to Ritchie.

Green has 25 years of experience with CPR, most recently serving as senior vice president, marketing and sales. He also has held operations-related senior management posts.

"Fred Green has clearly shown his capacity for innovation and leadership in developing high performance teams under his direction," Ritchie said. "His appointment demonstrates the depth of proven experience that CPR has in its management team."
