Amtrak has selected Richard Anderson, 62, as its new permanent CEO; Anderson had retired as Delta Airlines' CEO in 2016.  The railroad has been headed since last year by veteran freight railroad executive Charles Moorman, 65, who took over the throttle as a transitional leader.  Anderson assumes his new post on July 12, just days after Amtrak begins its summer work program at New York Penn Station which will inconvenience thousands of Penn Station users; the work program was initiated by outgoing CEO Moorman. Moorman will continue as co-CEO through a transitional period, until December 12. Anderson had previously worked at Delta predecessor Northwest Airlines, and also served as an executive with United Healthcare. He is credited with leading Delta through a bankruptcy and to its current status as one of the most successful airlines. It is expected that a major task for Anderson will be to pursue new tunnels under the Hudson River and other components of what Amtrak calls its "Gateway" project to improve and expand services at New York Penn. Anderson will receive only a token salary; Moorman also declined to be compensated for his work at Amtrak. The Anderson story is widely reported, including by Larry Higgs and Jonathan D. Salant for NJ Advance Media, and Patrick McGeehan for the New York Times.
