Jeff Shockey, formerly vice president of federal and international affairs at Boeing (NYSE: BA), has been appointed VP of global sales and marketing at the company’s defense, space and security segment.

He succeeds Tom Bell, who left the Boeing after more than two years leading the segment’s sales and marketing efforts worldwide, the company said Tuesday.
