Big Changes At Boeing As Mulally Leaves To Head Ford Motor Company

Scott Carson Named New President Of Boeing Commercial Airplanes

Over the past several years, Alan Mulally (right) oversaw a business turnaround at Boeing's Commercial Airplane operation... a fact surely not lost on beleaguered automaker Ford Motor Company, who in a surprise move Tuesday named Mulally as its new chief executive officer.

"Clearly, the challenges Boeing faced in recent years have many parallels to our own," said current Ford CEO William Clay Ford to the Wall Street Journal. Ford will remain with the troubled automaker -- which has seen its fortunes turn for the worse over the past several years, as people moved away from buying large trucks -- as chairman.

Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney named Scott E. Carson -- a 34-year veteran at Boeing -- to replace Mulally as head of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, effective immediately.

"Scott Carson is a seasoned and well-respected leader who knows our customers, our business strategies, and our products and services inside and out," said McNerney. "He is uniquely qualified to step in and lead our commercial airplanes team and continue to advance our performance and growth plans."

Boeing also named James M. Jamieson, 58, to the new position of chief operating officer, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Jamieson currently serves as senior vice president, Engineering, Operations & Technology, at Boeing's corporate offices in Chicago. Jamieson will report to Carson and oversee airplane operations and product development.

"Adding the strength of Jim's background and experience in engineering, operations and product development will make our already strong Commercial Airplanes team even stronger," said McNerney.

Carson has a long record of accomplishment across Boeing. In his most recent position he reinvigorated sales of Boeing commercial airplanes and related services to airline customers and leasing companies around the world.

"I am excited and energized by the prospect of leading the people of this great business," Carson said. "We will remain steadfast and focused on executing our growth and productivity strategies, and meeting our commitments to our customers."

Carson will continue to lead the Commercial Airplanes sales team until a successor is named. In a statement Tuesday, McNerney wished Mulally well as he moves on to his next challenge.

"We thank Alan for his enduring contributions and nearly 40 years of service to our company," said McNerney. "We wish him great success as he moves on to become CEO at Ford."
