CALGARY, Nov. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - Totran Transportation Services Ltd. has appointed a new chief executive officer as of November 1, 2012 to head its business.
Rosemary Marr, who founded Transera in 1985 and later sold it to U.S. Based CH Robinson in 2008 has been the recipient of many awards throughout her career. Some of these include the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Rothman's Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of the Year, and the Pinnacle Award. With over 30 years of transportation experience, Marr plans to lead Totran to even greater success in the years to come.
