Amtrak Names New CEO
Amtrak, the company that operates most of the United States’ passenger rail services, announced the appointment of a new chief executive officer, Charles “Wick” Moorman.
Mr. Moorman will succeed outgoing CEO Joe Boardman, who is slated to retire September 1. He retired as the chairman and CEO of Norfolk Southern last year and is expected to be a transitional leader, the railroad’s chairman, Anthony Coscia said.
“We are very pleased that someone with Wick’s experience and vision will lead Amtrak during this critical period as the company charts a course for future growth and improvement,” he said.
Amtrak serves over 500 destinations in 46 of the 50 states as well as in three Canadian provinces. It operates over 300 trains each day on routes covering over 21,300 miles (34,000 kilometers) of track.
