OmniTRAX Canada names Weber director of business development

OmniTRAX Canada hired Trent Weber as director business development, reporting directly to Lenny Berz, vice president industrial development. He will be responsible for all commercial sales, marketing and account management for the Hudson Bay Railway Company and Carlton Trail Railway Company.


Weber's introduction to rail transportation as a summer scholarship student at the Canadian Wheat Board intrigued him and he has been involved with railways ever since. He remained at the Canadian Wheat Board in the transportation division for three years and then moved on to work at Canadian Pacific in numerous roles including port coordinator-Vancouver Grain and as account manager responsible for Saskatchewan Wheat Pool at Paterson and Parrish & Heimbecker.

He left CP to take on the role of director transportation and marketing at the Inland Terminal Group where he ran the Winnipeg office and was responsible for outbound rail transportation and merchandising oats and malting barley for three producer-owned grain companies.
