Keynote Speaker

David McLean
Founder of the McLean Group

One of the most distinguished Canadian business leaders of his time, David has been the driving force behind highly successful businesses in aviation, film studios, real estate development, and communications.David was the one to lead the privatization of CN at the request of the Canadian government, a controversial and bold move at the time.  The $2.26 billion CDN initial public offering was at the time the largest ever in Canadian history. Since 1995, the stock has appreciated in value approximately 1400%.

CN is also the most profitable freight railway in North America.Alongside the CN management team and the Board of Directors, David transformed the company from a traditional “Canada only” railway company into a leader in innovation in transportation across North America.
