Former defence minister and Australian War Memorial director Brendan Nelson has been appointed to run aerospace and defence giant Boeing's operations in Australia.
The Chicago-headquartered Boeing said on Monday Dr Nelson would commence as president of Boeing Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific on February 11.
He will oversee 3800 employees working across commercial plane manufacturing, military systems, services and research and development.
The appointment comes as Boeing faces one of the biggest crises in its history due to the grounding of its best-selling 737 MAX.
Boeing's Australian presence is its largest in any country outside its native US and includes a major manufacturing plant in Melbourne's Fishermans Bend which makes jet parts including for the 737 MAX and 787 Dreamliners.
