Winters Named Amtrak IG

February 5, 2019

Kevin Winters has been appointed as Amtrak’s inspector general, replacing  the retiringTom Howard.

Winters has been the carrier’s deputy inspector general and counsel since 2015, after serving for 10 years as a senior executive with NASA’s Office of Inspector General.

“Kevin is a highly respected leader in the Inspector General community and has a strong knowledge of Amtrak’s business operations and critical mission,” said Amtrak Board Chairman Tony Coscia. “He also has the integrity and objectivity required for this independent role.”

Winter previously served in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he retired with the rank of Brigadier General.

He earned a B.S.C. and a law degree from the University of Louisville, and a Masters in Law from the University of Virginia.

Howard has been with Amtrak’s OIG since 2010, serving as deputy inspector general before being promoted to the top IG position in 2015.
