CHICAGO – Amtrak has named Mark Murphy as general manager of long distance services. He will be based in Chicago and have accountability for safety, customer satisfaction, ridership, on-time performance, and financial results for the long-distance business line. He reports directly to DJ Stadtler, vice president of operations.

Murphy joined Amtrak in 1976. He most recently served as the deputy chief mechanical officer of terminal operations in Wilmington, Del. In his career, Murphy has held several positions jobs including terminal superintendent of the Washington Division, assistant vice president of service operations, superintendent of equipment standards and compliance, and master mechanic of the Central Division.

He will oversee the functions of the Transportation, Mechanical, and Engineering departments within a common business line for the 15 long-distance services. The new route directors who are responsible for profit and loss, business planning, and decision-making for specific long-distance trains will report to him.
