Canadian Pacific has promoted John Brooks to senior vice-president and chief marketing officer, responsible for business units and sales and marketing staff based throughout North America.

He reports to Keith Creel, CP president and chief executive officer.

Reporting directly to Brooks will be Tommy Browning, vice-president of sales and marketing, Merchandise and Bulk, and Jonathan Wahba, vice-president of sales and marketing, Intermodal and Grain.

Brooks was vice-president of marketing at the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern prior to it being acquired by CP in 2007.

He has held senior responsibilities in all lines of business including coal, chemicals, merchandise products, grain and intermodal. 

Browning started his rail career with Illinois Central in 1989 and has held a number of senior marketing and operations-related roles in his nearly three decades in the industry. Since joining CP in 2013, Browning has played an integral role in enhancing CP's merchandise and bulk portfolios while building relationships with key customers.

Wahba, who was most recently chief operating officer at Kriska Transportation Group, has also held leadership positions at Schneider National, Canadian National and Midland Transport. His extensive experience in trucking and rail will support CP's intermodal business.
