Boeing (NYSE: BA) has announced senior leadership and organizational changes, effective May 1.
The company said Tuesday the changes are part of efforts to streamline senior leadership responsibilities, advance cross-company integration, align enterprise services to today’s business conditions and prepare for the post-pandemic industry environment.
Greg Smith, executive vice president of enterprise operations and chief financial officer, has been named head of the newly created enterprise operations, finance and strategy group. The new group will include the corporate audit team as well as teams overseeing finance, supply chain and operations, manufacturing, enterprise services and administration, strategy and enterprise performance.
Jenette Ramos, senior VP of manufacturing, supply chain and operations, will assume a special assignment in support of David Calhoun, president and CEO of Boeing, and Smith. She will bring to the role 34 years of operational and leadership experience.
Brett Gerry, chief legal officer and EVP of global compliance, will oversee a new organization that combines the company’s core compliance and legal programs. Boeing will also appoint a new chief compliance officer who will report to Gerry and manage the firm’s trade control, ethics and compliance activities.
Tim Keating, EVP of government operations, will now be responsible for the company’s global spectrum management activities as part of the government operations group.
“I am confident these changes will drive greater alignment among our functions; better equip our commercial, defense and space, and services businesses to deliver on customer commitments in a changing marketplace; and support our continuous efforts to develop talent through challenging leadership assignments,” said Calhoun.
Diana Sands, SVP of the office of internal governance and administration at Boeing, will retire later this year after nearly a two-decade career within the company.
