The Intermodal Transportation Institute’s board of directors at the University of Denver has elected two new members: Mathieu Faure from Canadian Pacific Railway and Keith Reardon from Canadian National Railway. They will serve three-year terms.
With CP and CN joining the ITI board, all seven of the Class I railroads — the largest freight railroads in North America — are represented on the board, including BSNF Railway, CSX, Kansas City Southern Railway, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific and now CP and CN.
Faure is vice president of market and sales of intermodal with CP, a role he assumed in October 2012. Previously, he served as general manager of CP’s logistics and market development since 2010, and prior to that, he held increasingly senior commercial roles in the domestic intermodal and potash and fertilizer sectors of CP’s business. Before joining CP in 2006, he served as general manager of specialized equipment with Groupe Robert.
Reardon was appointed vice president of intermodal services for CN in May 2012 and is based in Toronto. In 2009, he was appointed vice president of supply chain solutions, where he was responsible for the automotive and iron ore business units and CN’s non-rail transportation services, including transloading, freight forwarding and warehousing. He also directed many supply chain and business development initiatives for CN. Previously, he was assistant vice president of CN’s transloading operations.
