Boeing Leaders Step Down Amid Scrutiny and Quality Control Issues

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun to retire at the end of 2024.

In light of increased scrutiny and quality control issues, three top executives at Boeing have announced their departure from the company. This includes CEO Dave Calhoun, board chair Larry Kellner, and head of commercial airplanes Stan Deal. Calhoun will step down at the end of 2024, while Kellner will not seek re-election at the upcoming shareholder meeting and Deal will retire effective Monday.

Calhoun, who had previously served on Boeing’s board of directors for 10 years before becoming CEO in 2020, was known for his operational skills, communication style, and crisis management abilities. However, the incident involving an Alaska Airlines jet where a piece fell off midflight on January 5th brought to light issues with Boeing’s manufacturing and quality control processes, leading to the need for new leadership.

As this is a developing story, updates on the situation will be provided as more information becomes available.
