Ted Colbert, who joined Boeing (NYSE: BA) in 2009 and formerly served as vice president of the information technology infrastructure organization, will succeed the departing Kim Hammonds as chief information officer.
He will lead the company’s IT organization and be responsible for IT strategy, systems, infrastructure, architecture, processes and people in his new role, Boeing said Thursday.
Colbert will report to John Tracy, chief technology officer and senior vice president of engineering, operations and technology.
Colbert’s first role at Boeing was director of the enterprise network services organization and was later promoted to VP of IT business systems, where he led efforts to develop and maintain computing application systems for the company’s finance, human resources, corporate offices and internal systems.
He is also a former Citigroup (NYSE: C) senior vice president and an 11-year veteran of Ford (NYSE: F).
