TORONTO Feb 4 Canadian Pacific Railway
appointed Keith Creel to the post of president and chief
operating officer, the company said on Monday.
Creel, a former protege of Canadian Pacific Chief Executive
Hunter Harrison, was previously executive vice president and
chief operating officer at Canadian National Railway,
the railroad that Harrison ran before he moved to CP.
It was widely expected that Harrison, who turned CN into
North America's most efficient railroad as CEO of the company,
would seek to bring Creel to CP. Harrison took the reins at his
former rival following a bruising proxy battle a year ago.
