Jim Chilton Appointed President of Boeings Network & Space Systems

Boeing veteran Jim Chilton is to succeed Craig R. Cooning as President of the companys Network & Space Systems (N&SS) businesses, effective 21 October 2016.

Cooning is retiring after 11 years at Boeing.

 Chilton was previously vice president of the companys Strategic Missile & Defense Systems organization, and before that he spent much of his 32-year career leading space launch, payload processing and rocket engine programs.

 These businesses made significant operating improvements under Craigs leadership, said Boeing Defense, Space & Security CEO Leanne Caret. Jim will now lead our efforts to exceed customers expectations by becoming even more affordable, efficient and innovative, with a focus on growth for the next century.

In conjunction with Chiltons promotion, Boeing is creating a new Strategic Defense & Intelligence Systems (SD&IS) organization by combining the group Chilton led with its Electronic & Information Solutions (E&IS) team.

 The SD&IS team brings together undersea mission solutions, signals intelligence and intelligence and analytics with advanced missile, missile defense and sensor solutions across all domains space, air, land, sea, undersea and cyber.

Chris Raymond, currently E&IS vice president and general manager, will lead the new organization.

Both Chilton and Raymond will be based in the Washington, D.C. area.
