Anderson, 62, who also headed the former Northwest Airlines in the Twin Cities, will succeed current Amtrak CEO Wick Moorman, who joined the company in September 2016.

"This is particularly unacceptable given the enormous payments made by our states to Amtrak to assure the state of good fix of Penn Station", Cuomo said.

Amtrak is making emergency repairs this summer at Penn Station on its aging infrastructure and the ripple effects of that construction is causing widespread service disruptions and delays at the transportation hub and on routes along the East Coast.
Anderson will take over as president and CEO on July 12.
Anderson was named Aviation Week's Person of the Year in 2015. The airline emerged from bankruptcy early in his tenure.
