WASHINGTON, D.C. — Metro has selected Neal Cohen, 55, an aerospace and defense products executive as its next GM and is in negotiations with him, The Washington Post reported.

Cohen, a former top financial official in the airline industry who became chief financial officer and executive VP of the aerospace company Orbital ATK in 2012, will become head of Metro if the two sides reach an agreement on a compensation package, the report said.

If Cohen joins Metro, he will take over as GM in one of Metrorail’s worst periods since the subway opened in 1976 as it struggles with rail safety problems and revenue woes, according to The Washington Post. For the full story, click here.
