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.
