Peter Edwards

Peter Edwards is the founder and CEO of a privately held polymathic group. Prior to leaving CP to form this endeavour, he was Vice-President Human Resources and Labour Relations at Canadian Pacific from 2010 to 2017 and was responsible for the integrated function across North America. During this tenure, CP performed “the greatest turnaround in corporate history,” according to CNBC.

Prior to joining Canadian Pacific, Peter held senior positions at Labatt Breweries / Interbrew, and Canadian National Railway. During this time, culture change and the high performance organization were part of Peter’s mandate. From working on critically praised books on managing a changing railway (How We Work and Why, and Change, Leadership, Mud, and Why) to establishing individual employee performance scorecards for every one of the 18,500 unionized employees, Peter uses the gamut of OD, HR and LR to continuously re-invent organizations. 

In 2008, Wiley Publishing released a book co-authored by Peter, called Switchpoints: Culture Change on the Fast Track. The book is a Canadian bestseller, reaching the top ten business books in Canada in the Globe and Mail.

Peter currently sits on four Boards of Directors that include start-ups and charitable organizations.

Peter holds an undergraduate degree and Master of Industrial Relations degree from Queen’s University.
