Newman Gets Promotion at Amtrak

April 23, 2019

Dennis Newman has been named by Amtrak to be its executive vice president, planning and strategy.

He joined Amtrak in December 2017 as Amtrak’s vice president of planning, strategy and research.

Before coming to Amtrak, Newman worked for Dish Network as vice president of sales. He also did stints at Northwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines for more than 17 years.

In a news release, Amtrak said that the corporate planning and strategy functions led by Newman and the commercial and marketing functions headed by Roger Harris will become separate entities within the group led by Stephen Gardner, senior executive vice president of commercial, marketing and strategy.

Previously, both of those functions reported to Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Tim Griffin, who recently retired from Amtrak.
