CN Elects 2 New Board Members

Canadian National has elected two new members to its board of directors.

Denise Gray is president of LG Energy Solution Michigan Tech Center while Justin Howell is a  senior investment manager at BMGI, which manages the assets of Cascade Investment.

Elected as chairman of the board was Robert Pace, president and chief executive officer of The Pace Group.

Also elected was Margaret McKenzie, who was appointed to the board in October 2020.

In a news release, CN said the election of Gray and McKenzie enabled the company to meet its goal of gender parity on the board a year earlier than planned.

The gender parity objective is part of the Class I’s environmental, sustainability and governance goals, which also include an update to board governance policies.

Those changes also called for reducing the board’s size to 10 independent directors plus the chief executive officer.

Reelected as CN directors were Shauneen Bruder, Julie Godin, Kevin Lynch, James O’Connor, Robert Phillips, Laura Stein, and CN President and CEO Jean-Jacques Ruest.
