CP's senior VP De Ciccio retires after 40 years

Canadian Pacific announced yesterday that Guido De Ciccio, senior vice president of operations in the Western region, is retiring from the Class I after 40 years of service.

De Ciccio joined CP in May 1976 as a laborer in the Montreal operations. Prior to becoming SVP of the Western region's operations, he served as general manager East, assistant VP East and vice president of CP.

Mark Redd has been appointed to take on De Ciccio's day-to-day responsibilities. Redd joined CP in October 2013 and has served as general manager of operations in the U.S. West, GM of operations of the central division, and was appointed to VP of operations in the West region in April. Prior to joining CP, Redd worked at Kansas City Southern Railway for more than 20 years.

CP President Keith Creel said De Ciccio's passion and enthusiasm for railroading is infectious.

"While he will be sorely missed, we are delighted to give Mark an opportunity to step up and continue to deliver superior service for our customers, employees and shareholders," said Creel in a press release.

CP Chief Executive Officer E. Hunter Harrison thanked De Ciccio for his "leadership and extraordinary commitment" to CP.

"I also thank Guido for his friendship; it was a unique pleasure to work alongside a railroader with a vintage in the industry close to mine and I wish him well in all his future endeavors," said Harrison.
