Boeing will alter the firm’s military aircraft section Boeing Military Aircraft (BMA) in an effort to make the business more competitive in the market.
BMA will move from six divisions to four in October.
Boeing Military Aircraft President Chris Chadwick argued the change will better position the firm to meet market demands in the future on a domestic and international scale.
“This new structure supports BMA’s progression from a product-based business to a capabilities-based business, focusing on supporting our customers in the United States and increasingly important international markets,” Chadwick said. “It is consistent with initiatives under way throughout the entire Boeing defense business that will allow us to remain competitive and grow.
According to the firm, the four new divisions are Global Strike, based in St. Louis, to be led by Shelley Lavender; Mobility, based in Ridley Park, Pa., to be led by Jean Chamberlin; Surveillance and Engagement, based in Seattle, to be led by Bob Feldmann; and Missiles and Unmanned Airborne Systems, based in St. Charles, Mo., to be led by Debbie Rub.
