Canadian Pacific appointed Michael Redeker to vice president and chief information officer, effective October 15, 2012. Redeker was most recently chief information officer at ATB Financial.

As CIO, Redeker will be responsible for re-defining CP’s future strategic information technology roadmap, improving asset utilization, market growth, shipment management and employee productivity.

He will report directly to President and CEO E. Hunter Harrison.

“I welcome Mike to our leadership team and look forward to working with him on delivering strategic IT activities that will translate into operational efficiencies,” said Harrison. “Our new CIO’s extensive experience will fit well with moving CP into the future.”

“CP is an iconic brand and I am extremely excited by the change underway in the organization,” said Redeker. “I look forward to taking on this challenge and intend to focus on opportunities that will improve how the railway operates and, ultimately, how we serve our customers and deliver long-term shareholder value.”

With more than five years at ATB, Redeker completed an end-to-end technology upgrade and replacement program. He also spent 11 years at IBM Canada, where he focused on delivering quality information technology services within the financial services industry.
