Amtrak names Boardman as new “interim” CEO

The excitement simply never stops at Amtrak. Bloomberg has the latest news on corporate leadership. Here is the lead, and a link to the entire story.

By Angela Greiling Keane and John Hughes

Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) — Amtrak, whose budget may increase under an Obama administration, said its new chief executive officer will be the head of the U.S. railroad-safety agency.

Joseph Boardman, 59, who has led the Federal Railroad Administration since April 2005, succeeds Alex Kummant, who resigned from the passenger carrier on Nov. 14. Boardman will serve for a year as Amtrak searches for a “permanent” chief, Chairwoman Donna McLean said today in a statement.

For additional context, I urge you to scroll down to my analysis of the Alex Kummant “resignation” and commentary by former Amtrak board member Paul Weyrich.
