Amtrak named DJ Stadtler the new vice president of operations, overseeing the railroad's transportation, engineering and mechanical departments, effective immediately.
“DJ is a superb individual who knows Amtrak inside and out, has the skill and ability to lead operations and will bring improved management and focus on meeting the needs of passengers across our national network of service,” said Amtrak President and CEO Joseph Boardman.
Stadtler will be responsible for delivery of service including the train crews, locomotives and other train equipment, stations, food and beverage and the Amtrak-owned infrastructure on the Northeast Corridor and elsewhere.
Stadtler has served as the acting vice president of operations since December 2011 and previously served as the chief financial officer at Amtrak. He has more than 20 years of experience including more than 11 years at the U.S. Department of Transportation.
