Canada Post names new president and CEO
Canada Post Corporation has announced the appointment of Deepak Chopra as its president and CEO at what it says is a critical time in the company's history. Chopra previously held a similar position with mailing machine giant Pitney Bowes Canada after serving in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East regions.
Board chair Mark Courtois (who made the announcement jointly with Rob Merrifield, Minister of State (Transport) and Minister Responsible for Canada Post) said
The position of president and CEO became vacant when Moya Green was headhunted by the Royal Mail in Britain, with the avowed aim of privatising many of its services.He knows Canada Post, and he knows the postal business. He brings more than 15 years of global experience as a postal industry executive, and commands tremendous respect within the international postal community....Mr. Chopra is known for commercializing several ideas and creating new revenue streams. Creativity, ingenuity and innovation are exactly what Canada Post needs right now....[he] is a man of great accomplishment, but you won’t hear him promoting himself. He is a man of great humility who lives by the philosophy that institutions are bigger than individuals.
Chopra is, of course, not the well-known meditation guru of the same name.
