Amtrak named former head of Norfolk Southern Charles W. "Wick" Moorman as its next president and chief executive officer.
Moorman will start leading the passenger railroad on Sept. 1, in the next fiscal year.
Having previously been chairman, CEO and president of Norfolk Southern, Moorman brings plenty of experience to Amtrak, said Anthony Coscia, chairman of Amtrak's board of directors.
"Wick's deep operational background and track record of building teams and driving innovation is exactly what we need to provide unparalleled service to the more than 500 communities we serve," Jeffrey Moreland, vice chairman of the board, said in a statement.
Moorman said that he plans to "develop a stronger safety and service culture throughout the company" at Amtrak.
"I look forward to advancing those same goals at Amtrak and helping to build a plan for future growth," he said in a statement.
Last fall, current CEO Joe Boardman announced that he was planning to retire. Coscia said that under Boardman, Amtrak "delivered record ridership, introduced a series of safety initiatives and modernized its fleet."
