Former 717 Chief Named GM Of Boeing Fabrication
Following the delivery of the last two Boeing 717s
earlier this week, the head of the company's Long
Beach, CA commercial production facility was, technically, out of a
job... but not for very long.
On Thursday, Boeing announced that Pat McKenna will soon begin
his new job, as vice president and general manager of its
Commercial Airplanes Fabrication business unit.
In his new role, McKenna (right) will be responsible for leading
nearly 12,000 employees who together comprise the world's largest
consolidated aerospace engineering and manufacturing operation. As
the largest supplier to Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Boeing
Fabrication produces aerospace parts, tools and assemblies.
McKenna will report to Carolyn Corvi, vice president and general
manager of Airplane Production at Boeing.
Boeing Fabrication is headquartered in Auburn, WA and operates
eight other major manufacturing sites in Frederickson and Everett,
WA; Portland, OR; Salt Lake City, UT; Oak Ridge, TN.; Winnipeg,
Canada; and Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.
McKenna fills the Boeing Fabrication leadership position
previously held by Ross Bogue who, in February, assumed
responsibility as vice president and general manager for
747/767/777 Programs and the Everett site.
