Before joining the OIG community, Winters served in the United States Marine Corps, from which he retired as a Brigadier General. A Harrisburg, Pa., native, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Commerce and a law degree from the University of Louisville. He is also an alumnus of the University of Virginia, where he earned aMaster’s Degree in Law.
“Kevin is a highly respected leader in the OIG 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.”
Howard announced his retirement in November 2018. He joined the OIG in 2010 as Deputy Inspector General and has served as Amtrak IG for the past five years. Howard led the reorganization of the OIG “that furthered its independence,” Coscia said. “Tom has provided nothing but honorable and productive service during his time as IG. He has left a lasting, positive mark on Amtrak’s OIG, and I’ve greatly valued his objectivity in providing unvarnished assessments of the company’s programs and operations.”
In October 2018, Amtrak’s OIG announced that the passenger railroad could cut service- and inspection-related costs by adjusting workloads and staffing and by managing overtime.
