Boeing CEO Resigns Amid Crisis In Aircraft Manufacturer

The CEO of Boeing, Dave Calhoun, has announced his decision to resign from his position. The company will see changes in leadership, with the chairman of the board, Larry Kellner, also stepping down. Steve Mollenkopf has been appointed as the new chairman, and Stan Deal, the CEO of the Commercial Airplanes business unit, will also retire.

Calhoun has been serving as CEO of Boeing since 2020. However, in an interview with CNBC, Calhoun stated that he made the decision to resign himself. Despite facing increased scrutiny in recent months due to safety issues with its aircraft, Boeing continues to prioritize the well-being of passengers and address these concerns.

Several incidents involving Boeing planes have raised concerns in recent months. A Wall Street Journal report revealed a criminal investigation by the US Department of Justice into these incidents. These incidents include planes experiencing malfunctions mid-flight, such as the loss of a part of the wall of a Boeing 737 Max model. Additionally, there have been instances of landing gear problems and runway incidents involving Boeing aircraft.

The reason for Calhoun’s departure was not specified in the company’s press release. However, it is likely that these safety issues played a role in his decision to resign.

Boeing is committed to maintaining and improving the safety and reliability of its aircraft to ensure the highest standards of performance for passengers. With new leadership in place and a renewed focus on safety concerns
