Craig Volstad, Director of Operations, Learning Design and Strategy

Craig had seen it all after serving 25 years in the military. He had served in every province and territory in Canada and on two combat tours in Kandahar, Afghanistan. His ambition and dedication to leadership paved an accomplished career path full of post-secondary degrees (MBA, BEng, PBDM) and the senior rank of Major. 

After an accomplished and celebrated career with seven moves, Craig decided to settle in Calgary with his wife. They knew they could find stable careers and a nurturing community for their family in this location. Working with Prospect, he connected with CP as a preferred employer of veterans. 

Craig was hired as a Senior Project Manager in the Information Services department. He was then promoted to Manager, Operations Training Development and subsequently to Director of Operations, Learning Design and Strategy. While having no previous railway experience, his educational and leadership experience was recognized by CP’s recruitment team as someone who has exceptional organizational and project management qualities. He continues to put his leadership skills to work every day.
