Boeing Names Pat Goggin as President of Defense and Space Development

Boeing has confirmed that it will promote Pat Goggin as President of its Defense, Space & Security Development organization, succeeding Jim ONeill who will retire next year.

Goggin currently is vice president of Airplane Programs Engineering for the companys Commercial Airplanes unit, overseeing the engineering teams that support all the current 7-series passenger planes.

Before that, he was vice president of Boeings Development Program Excellence initiative, focused on properly starting programs and identifying key risk areas.

During more than three decades with Boeing, Jim built a legacy that will endure for many years to come, said Leanne Caret, President and CEO of Defense, Space & Security. Pats experience across commercial and defense programs will help us grow a stable of strong development programs on the foundation that Jim put in place.

BDS Development oversees the pre-production phases of key defense and space programs with a goal of enhancing performance prior to entering production. It, and a similar organization in Commercial Airplanes, demonstrate the companys best-of-Boeing approach to reduce risk and improve the affordability of key development activities.

Goggin, who has worked at Boeing for 29 years, will move into his new role in December so he and ONeill can collaborate during a transition period.
