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

Boeing is facing increased scrutiny and quality control issues, prompting three top executives to leave the company. This includes CEO Dave Calhoun, board chair Larry Kellner, and head of commercial airplanes Stan Deal. Calhoun will depart at the end of 2024, while Kellner will not seek re-election at the upcoming shareholder meeting and Deal will retire effective Monday.

Calhoun had previously served on Boeing’s board of directors for 10 years before becoming CEO in 2020. He was known for his operational skills, communication style, and crisis management abilities. However, an 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.

Kellner was also a longtime executive at Boeing, serving as chairman of the board since 2016. He has been a key figure in shaping the company’s strategic direction and overseeing its operations. Deal has been head of commercial airplanes since 2018 and has played a crucial role in driving growth in this business unit.

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