Boeing’s Caryn Nightengale Named Liquid Robotics CFO; Gary Gysin Comments

Caryn Nightengale

Caryn Nightengale, formerly director of corporate development at Boeing’s (NYSE: BA) defense, space and security segment, has joined Sunnyvale, California-based unmanned maritime systems maker Liquid Robotics as chief financial officer.

She will report to Gary Gysin, Liquid Robotics’ president and CEO, and oversee financial management, contracts, information technology and global trade controls functions in her new role, the company said Monday.

“Caryn brings a combination of financial acumen, innovative thinking and strategic market focus that will be instrumental as we enter our next phase of growth,” Gysin said.

Nightengale was instrumental in the development and execution of growth strategies at Boeing’s BDS segment through equity investments, acquisitions, joint ventures and divestitures.

The investment banking veteran is a member of the annual giving executive committee at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and the University of Pennsylvania’s basketball board.

Her appointment came six months after Boeing acquired Liquid Robotics as part of the aerospace firm’s strategy to establish new information services functions between the ocean and space.

Liquid Robotics developed the Wave Glider ocean surface robot system.
