Canadian Pacific CEO Hunter Harrison was recently named as Morningstar's "CEO of the Year" for 2013. He was chosen because he embodies "exemplary corporate stewardship, demonstrates independent thinking, creates lasting value for shareholders, and has put his ... stamp on an industry," according to Morningstar officials. "Harrison has now transformed three railroads in his career, and along the way forged a new standard of profitability in a two-centuries-old industry," said Morningstar's Heather Brilliant.
