David Calhoun, a board member at Boeing (NYSE: BA) since 2009, has been elected to succeed Kenneth Duberstein as lead director of the Chicago, Illinois-based defense and aerospace contractor’s board in a move that takes effect April 30.

“Dave is a tremendous asset to Boeing, bringing invaluable skills and experience in strategic leadership, corporate governance and operations from his broad career in technology, aerospace and finance,” Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing chairman, president and CEO, said in a statement published Friday.

Calhoun is a senior managing director and head of private equity portfolio operations at the Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) and serves as independent board chairman at Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT) and Gates Corp.

He previously served as board chairman and CEO at Nielsen Holdings (NYSE: NLSN) and held senior leadership roles at General Electric (NYSE: GE) during his 26-year career there.

He is set for re-election at the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting, which is scheduled by the end of April, after the board cleared a waiver of its policy for director retirement.
