Tobias Albrechtson, Carman, Mechanical

"Take that fire you had for serving, and apply the same attitude here at CP. Be a leader, respect is earned, never given."

Born in Montreal, QC, Tobias Albrechtson was always a hands-on type of guy. This led him to spend five and a half years as a Corporal at Lord Strathcona's Horse (RC) as a Driver/Gunner. Familiar with field environments from overseas deployments, he craved an outdoor structured work environment when transitioning out of the military.

In his four years as a Carman/Railcar Mechanic at CP, he applies his background in mechanics and leadership skills to plan and organize tasks every day. Every day, Tobias is presented with problems to solve, such as repairing and diagnosing railcars. 

He credits military life for his dedicated outlook and ability to make decisions on the ground and follow through until the job is done.
