Amtrak says it has selected Joseph Boardman, administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration, to lead the national passenger railroad for one year.

Boardman replaces chief executive Alex Kummant, who resigned Nov. 14 after two years marked by significant growth in ridership and revenue.

Boardman has served as administrator of the FRA since 2005. Amtrak announced Tuesday that he will take over the national passenger railroad on Wednesday.

Amtrak board chairwoman Donna McLean says Boardman has been appointed chief executive for one year. A search will begin in the coming months for a permanent leader.
