Steve Sammut has been picked as the new president of Rocky Mountaineer.

John Furlong, chairman of the board, Rocky Mountaineer, said of the appointment: “It is a new era at Rocky Mountaineer and we are very pleased to have a leader of Steve’s calibre at the helm. His passion for the company, deep knowledge in capital markets and broad business acumen from the hospitality and real estate industries will continue to be invaluable to our organization.”

Before he joined Rocky Mountaineer, Sammut was the chief financial officer for Intracorp Projects Limited, a real estate development firm and was also active in a variety of senior leadership roles at the global resort operator and developer, Intrawest ULC, including roles as corporate treasurer and chief financial officer for the real estate division.
