The Boeing board of directors has elected Dennis Muilenburg to succeed Jim McNerney in the role of chief executive.

Muilenburg will become the tenth chief executive of Boeing when he takes up the role on July 1st, having served as Boeing president and chief operating officer since 2013. McNerney, who joined Boeing’s board of directors in 2001, will continue as its chairman.

He will continue working as a company employee until retiring at the end of February 2016, and continue advocating on issues important to Boeing’s US and global customers, partners and stakeholders, including on-going Washington, DC, engagement.

“Dennis is an extremely capable, experienced and respected leader with an immense passion for our company, our people, and our products and services,” said McNerney.

“The opportunity to lead the people of Boeing in service to our commercial and government customers is a tremendous honour and responsibility,” said Muilenburg.

“Our company is financially strong and well positioned in our markets.

“As we continue to drive the benefits of integrating our enterprise skills, capabilities and experience – what we call operating as ‘One Boeing’ – we will find new and better ways to engage and inspire employees, deliver innovation that drives customer success, and produce results to fuel future growth and prosperity for all our stakeholders.”
