Jim Hawkins Chosen by Railveyor for CEO Role

GREATER SUDBURY, ONTARIO, CANADA – November 4, 2021 – Rail-Veyor Technologies Global Inc. (RVTG) proudly welcomes James “Jim” Hawkins as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of RVTG, effective 1 October 2021. Mr. Hawkins takes over the executive duties from Jim Fisk who filled the role during a year-long global search. Fisk remains as Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors.

During a career spanning 35 years at industry titan Caterpillar, Hawkins led various parts of that organization in the functional areas of Engineering, New Product Development, Sales/Marketing, Dealer Administration and Product Management. Most recently he served as General Manager of the MineStar technology business, where he was responsible for the development, sales, implementation, operations, and support of technologies developed for the mining industry to aid customers in enhancing their safety while increasing productivity and efficiency. Notably, he led the organization to develop and commercialize autonomy for mobile equipment – a project which created unparalleled customer value and positioned the company as a leader in this transformational technology.

“I was attracted to Railveyor by the potential of this technology to improve the safety, efficiency, and environmental sustainability of how material is moved in the mining industry. We have a great team of people with tremendous experience in solving customer problems, and I am honored to lead them as a part of the Railveyor organization,” stated Hawkins. 

“The product continues to prove its value to our more and more customers around the world and so again we’re at a turning point in the life of Railveyor as a company,” said Jim Fisk. “I have no doubt that Jim Hawkins has the experience, insight and character to wisely lead our accelerating enterprise into the next chapter of Railveyor.”

Hawkins is a graduate of the University of Nebraska with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and has completed the Executive Leadership Program at Stanford University. As a seasoned global executive with a proven record of sharp focus on customers, Jim Hawkins aims to guide the strong existing Railveyor team to deliver even more remarkable and wide-ranging successes to their customers.
