- Orders have slowed this year for U.S. company and rival Airbus
Three prominent sales executives are retiring from Boeing Co., leaving key vacancies on the planemaker's global commercial-marketing team ahead of next month's Paris Air Show, the aerospace industry's largest trade expo.
With the turnover, Boeing loses executives with deep customer relationships in some of its most critical markets as the company tries to rebuild confidence in the 737 Max after two fatal crashes. Boeing, which like Airbus is off to a slow start on jetliner sales this year, must also navigate U.S.-China trade tensions.
