GE Aviation veteran Kevin McAllister has been named as the next president and CEO of Boeing’s Commercial Airplanes division to succeed company vice-chairman Ray Conner in the role after Conner retires at the end of next year.
Boeing said Conner, 61, will continue to serve as vice chairman throughout next year and will work closely with McAllister “on a purposeful hand-off of customer, supplier, and community and government relationships, and to ensure continuity of operations and customer support”.
McAllister, 53, joins Boeing after 27 years with GE Aviation, where he served since 2014 as president and CEO of GE Aviation Services. Before that, as vice president and general manager of global sales and marketing since 2008, he was credited with delivering record backlog growth for the nearly-$25bn GE business.
Boeing chairman, president and CEO Dennis Muilenburg said: "Kevin is one of industry's best and most highly regarded senior executives, and we are thrilled to have him join Boeing and our strong Commercial Airplanes team.
"He's a passionate leader with decades of commercial aviation knowledge and experience, knows Boeing well and has the results-oriented operational and business experience needed to lead this vital and growing part of our company."
