MONTREAL —Remi G. Lalonde will become Canadian National’s executive vice-president and chief commercial officer effective April 24, succeeding Doug MacDonald, who will retire after almost 35 years. Lalonde had joined CN in January, becoming executive vice president and special advisor to the CEO while transitioning to the role he’ll assume on the 24th. He previously was CEO of Montreal-based Resolute Forest Products. Since joining the railroad, he had been gaining first-hand experience with scheduled railroading and CN’s “Make the Plan, Run the Plan, Sell the Plan” model. CN CEO Tracy Robinson said Lalonde’s “diverse experience and deep understanding of North American and global supply chains will bring important perspective as we focus our efforts on accelerating sustainable, profitable growth.”
