Boeing Eyes Outsider Leadership to Steer Back to Course

Boeing's board is casting a wide net in its search for a new CEO, with industry insiders predicting an "outside remedy" to address the company's deepening crisis. This leadership change follows the resignation of CEO Dave Calhoun, who steps down by year-end alongside Boeing's commercial airplanes chief and chairman.


The American planemaker has been embroiled in a safety crisis that intensified in January with a 737 MAX incident. This renewed concerns about Boeing's safety culture and quality control, prompting pressure from airlines, regulators, and investors. The new CEO inherits a daunting task list. Restoring public trust, fixing safety lapses, and rebuilding relationships with regulators and customers are all crucial. Additionally, they must navigate production ramp-up, cash flow concerns, and competition from Airbus.
