Dave Gunn

Dave Gunn 1.jpgDave Gunn was born in Boston, but his people are from Cape Breton. He's been in charge of some of the most complex subway systems in North America, including New York, Washington, and Toronto.

He's mentioned in The Tipping Point as the guy who got rid of the graffiti on the New York subway cars. Dave got a lot of media attention back in the early 2000s as President of Amtrak, the national rail service in the U.S. He was fired by the Bush administration in 2005.

He now lives in the old family home in St George's Channel. We sat down for a chat at the kitchen table.
