The longest serving chair—1994-2014—in the history of Canadian National Railway (CN), McLean during his time “transformed CN into a leader and model for the railway industry with his innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. Upon his retirement from CN, he was named Chairman Emeritus of the rail company.”
Originally hailing from Calgary, Alberta, McLean is a businessman who founded his own real estate investment firm, The McLean Group, in the early 1970s. He previously served as Chair of the University of British Columbia’s Board of Governors, and was appointed to the Order of British Columbia in 1999.
This marks the eighth rail car dedicated by Rocky Mountaineer since 1990. The dedication was presented to McLean by Rocky Mountaineer Owner and Founder Peter Armstrong.
