Anderson, who most recently was executive chairman of Delta Air Lines after serving as the airline's CEO from 2007 to 2016, will begin his new duties at Amtrak on July 12, Amtrak officials announced in a press release.
"The board also appreciates all that Wick continues to do to improve Amtrak's safety culture and strengthen our operating performance, including the important renewal work at New York Penn Station", Coscia 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.
This announcement comes at a tumultuous time for America's passenger rail provider.
Amtrak yesterday named former airline industry executive Richard Anderson as the national passenger railroad's next president and chief executive officer.
As part of the transition, Anderson and Moorman will serve as co-CEO's through December 31, officials said.

During his tenure, Delta outpaced its peers in on-time performance, grew rapidly in top business markets such as NY and acquired stakes in airlines in the United Kingdom, China, Mexico and Brazil.
Amtrak is scheduled to do emergency fix work at Penn Station over the summer. In a recent meeting with The Washington Post's editorial board, Moorman had indicated that his current role was to serve as a "transitional CEO", working to reorganize and streamline Amtrak's operations before turning it over to new leadership. Anderson was Northwest's CEO from 2001 to 2004.
