The new CEO of Boeing, David Calhoun, took the reins of the Boeing organisation last week on January 13, 2020. This came on the back of the earlier CEO of Boeing being fired in December 2019.
The new CEO has a long and winding road in front of him, untangling the 737 MAX affairs and ensuring a return to service and recertification of the 737 MAX when the FAA and Boeing are ready. Not just that, he needs to ensure that the 777X programme, which was hit with snags on account of the GE9X engine, setting back the timeline of first delivery by about a year from 2020 to 2021. Not just that, there is a CST-100 Starliner somewhere, which needs to be fixed up after the testing not delivering the desired results last year for US space missions. And then there are challenges on the military programmes and the long-overdue integration of Boeing and Embraer.
The long-time member of the Boeing board, and now CEO, has already put some wheels in motion, it seems.
He had a company-wide town hall, and right after, he did a press conference over the telephone with select media. Dominic Gates of Seattle Times, Jon Ostrower of The Air Current and others were on the call.
