Cando Rail names Cornick CEO to succeed Mills
Cando Rail Services has appointed Brian Cornick chief executive officer.
Most recently a consultant for businesses throughout North America, Cornick will provide leadership and a long-term strategy and vision for Cando and its subsidiaries. As CEO, he succeeds Brent Mills, who is transitioning to retirement, according to a company press release.
After finishing a career in the Canadian Air Force as a captain, Cornick moved into various leadership roles, including vice president in operations, corporate services and client services. He also served as president and CEO of a 2,300-employee company that managed toll highways in the United States.
"Brian is an accomplished leader with a vast amount of executive experience," said Cando President and Chairman Gord Peters. "His knowledge in building and sustaining strong teams and external partnerships will compliment Cando’s existing foundation and momentum in positioning the company as a key supplier in the rail industry."
Cornick will be based out of the company's corporate headquarters in Brandon, Manitoba. Cando operates the Central Manitoba, Orangeville Brampton and Barrie Collingwood railways, and provides industrial rail, rail-car storage, mechanical, transloading and engineering/track services.
