Boeing makes more management changes at commercial airplanes unit
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA.N: Quote) announced more management changes at its commercial airplanes unit on Tuesday, elevating several program leaders who will report directly to the division's chief, Ray Conner.
The changes follow a reshuffle announced on Friday that elevated airplane programs senior vice president Pat Shanahan and airplane development senior vice president Scott Fancher to company-wide roles, reporting to Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg.
Shanahan's role will not be filled, Conner said in a memo to employees on Tuesday.
"This new lineup will give airplane programs a more direct link to the leadership team and strengthen ties between the manufacturing and operations parts of the business," Conner said in the memo.
