Marc Brazeau
OTTAWA, Ontario – The Railway Association of Canada has named Marc Brazeau as its new president and CEO, effective July 3, 2018. Heu succeeds Michael Bourque who was president and CEO from April 2012 to November 2017.

“Marc brings to this position a diverse background of business experience, leadership and advocacy which will help to ensure RAC remains the voice of Canada’s railway industry,” says Sean Finn, executive vice president of corporate services and chief legal officer at Canadian National, and chair of the Association’s board of directors. “Most importantly, Marc has demonstrated the ability to effectively lead a national industry association. We’re confident that his previous responsibilities and experience have prepared him for this role, and puts him in an excellent position to succeed.”

Brazeau once worked for the Automotive Industries Association of Canada, where he spent more than seven years as its president and CEO. He joins the Association from automotive paint and products distributor Uni-Select, where he held the position of vice president of sales and marketing since May 2015.

“Railways are the backbone of Canada’s world-class supply chain, as well as a safe and sustainable option for transporting goods and passengers,” Brazeau says. “I am looking forward to leading an association that’s known as an authority on issues related to Canada’s railway industry, and as a trusted advocate for its members.”

Brazeau holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Ottawa and a three-year Public Relations diploma from Humber College. In addition, he holds the internationally recognized Certified Association Executive designation, which is built on abilities that demonstrate the essential skills of efficient and effective not-for-profit management.
