De Ciccio joined CP in May, 1976, first working as a labourer in the Montreal operations. Prior to becoming SVP Operations Western Region, De Ciccio served as General Manager East, Assistant Vice-President East, and Vice-President CP.
"I congratulate Guido on his 40 years of loyal service and thank him for his leadership and extraordinary commitment to CP," said CP CEO E. Hunter Harrison. "I also thank Guido for his friendship; it was a unique pleasure to work alongside a railroader with a vintage in the industry close to mine and I wish him well in all his future endeavours."
Taking on De Ciccio's day-to-day responsibilities is Mark Redd. Redd joined CP in October 2013 and has worked as General Manager Operations U.S. West, General Manager Operations Central Division, and was appointed to Vice-President Operations West Region in April of this year. Prior to joining CP, Redd had more than 20 years at Kansas City Southern Railway.
"Since the day I arrived at CP, I have enjoyed a strong working relationship and personal friendship with Guido," said Keith Creel, CP's President and Chief Operating Officer. "His passion and enthusiasm for railroading was infectious. While he will be sorely missed, we are delighted to give Mark an opportunity to step up and continue to deliver superior service for our customers, employees and shareholders."
