Stadtler to Head Virginia Rail Authority

April 15, 2021

The Virginia Passenger Rail Authority has named a former Amtrak executive as its executive director.

Appointed was Donald A. Stadtler Jr., who worked at Amtrak for 12 years. His positions at the intercity rail carrier included chief financial officer, chief operations officer, and chief administrative officer.

The Virginia agency, created last year, has a mandate to promote, sustain, and expand passenger and commuter rail service in the state.

Virginia Secretary of Transportation Shannon Valentine said in a statement that Stadtler’s appointment represents an opportunity for the state to focus on customer service, safety, and performance.
