Boeing Vet Chris Raymond to Lead Embraer Integration

Chris Raymond

Chris Raymond, vice president and general manager of autonomous systems at Boeing’s (NYSE: BA) defense, space and security business, will lead the integration of Embraer’s engineering operations and products with those of the Chicago-based company, the Puget Sound Business Journal reported Saturday.

Greg Smith, Boeing’s chief financial officer, announced Raymond’s appointment at a Jefferies-organized investor conference.

Boeing and Embraer agreed to form a strategic partnership in July to create a joint venture that will advance new applications and markets for the KC-390 aircraft and other defense platforms and services.

The transaction over the strategic partnership is expected to close by the end of 2019, subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals.

Smith said Raymond will collaborate with his counterparts at the Brazilian aerospace company to streamline the launch of product lines and other capabilities with Boeing.

Raymond, a two-time Wash100 recipient, previously served as VP and GM of strategic defense and intelligence systems division and electronic and information solutions unit at Boeing’s defense business.

He joined Boeing in 1986 as an engineer at the firm’s Long Beach, Calif.-based facility.
