Boeing has made a series of executive leadership changes and restructured Boeing Commercial Airplanes to better align resources across its development and production programs and strengthen oversight of its global supply chain.

Effective immediately, Commercial Airplanes Supplier Management, Fabrication, Propulsion Systems and the Manufacturing and Quality functional organization are part of a new organization, called Supply Chain Management and Operations, led by Ray Conner. Conner, 53, has extensive experience in program leadership and manufacturing and supply chain management. He most recently was vice president of Sales for Commercial Airplanes.

All current production and development programs, including the 787 Dreamliner and 747-8, are being brought together in a new Airplane Programs organization reporting to Pat Shanahan, formerly vice president and general manager of the 787 program. Shanahan, 46, continues to have direct oversight and accountability for the 787 program, with Scott Fancher becoming that program's vice president and general manager. Fancher, 50, who has extensive program management, systems engineering and advanced design experience, previously led the company's missile defense business.

Carolyn Corvi, who led the previous Airplane Programs organization, has announced she will retire at year's end after a 34-year career at Boeing.

Marlin Dailey succeeds Conner as vice president of Sales. Dailey, 52, is a 28-year Boeing veteran who most recently led Commercial Airplanes sales efforts in Europe, Russia and Central Asia.
