He will serve on the newly formed aerospace safety committee and on the board’s special programs committee, Boeing said Friday.

Boeing Chairman David Calhoun said Richardson has experience and operational capabilities in the development and implementation of safety procedures and policies in mission-critical environments.

He is a recipient of the Vice Admiral James Bond Stockdale Award and his naval career included time as director of naval reactors, director of strategy and policy at U.S. Joint Forces Command and as naval aide to the president.
