Boeing has appointed Ian Thomas president of Boeing Australia and South Pacific, and Dinesh Keskar as vice president of Boeing International and president of Boeing India. The appointments are effective March 1. Both executives will report to Shep Hill, president of Boeing International.

Thomas, who was formerly president of Boeing India, succeeds Craig Saddler, who will be moving to a new position with Boeing in the United States.

Thomas will be responsible for government affairs in Australia and will coordinate all Boeing activities in Australia and across the South Pacific region. Prior to serving as president of Boeing India, he led Boeing Integrated Defense Systems business development efforts in Europe.

Keskar will represent the entire enterprise and be responsible for leading Boeing-wide efforts focused on expanding the company's local presence and pursuing new growth and productivity initiatives.

Prior to this appointment, Keskar served as Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of Sales for South and Southeast Asia and was responsible for overseeing all activities for that business within the region.

Boeing has also made personnel moves within its corporate and business unit Finance organizations.

Commercial Airplanes Chief Financial Officer Rob Pasterick, 53, has been named vice president of Finance and corporate controller, reporting to Boeing Corporate President and Chief Financial Officer James Bell.

Pasterick has held a variety of key Finance roles across the company in his 29 years of service. He succeeds Harry McGee, 59, who becomes vice president of strategy integration for internal services, a new position created to drive long-term efficiencies and greater productivity across the company's internal business support services.

McGee, who has 27 years with the company, will continue to report to Bell, who oversees the company's Shared Services Group and other back-office support functions.

Ray Ferrari, 54, a 30-year Boeing veteran with broad experience across the company's defense and commercial businesses, succeeds Pasterick as Commercial Airplanes chief financial officer.

Ferrari most recently served as vice president of Finance for Network & Space Systems at Boeing Integrated Defense Systems.

Craig Saddler, 49, now president of Boeing Australia and the South Pacific, will replace Ferrari. Saddler, who has 27 years with the company, served in a variety of senior Finance roles before taking his Australian assignment.

Boeing also named Jon Emery, 51, vice president and controller of the Commercial Airplanes unit. Emery most recently led the company's program risk assessment group and internal services productivity initiatives. He has 28 years with Boeing.

These latter changes are effective immediately.
