Boeing Execs Step Down Amidst Quality Control Scrutiny: Calhoun, Kellner, and Deal

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun to retire at the end of 2024.

As a result of increased scrutiny and quality control concerns, three top executives at Boeing have announced their departures from the company. This includes Dave Calhoun, who served as CEO since 2020, board chair Larry Kellner, and head of commercial airplanes Stan Deal. Calhoun will step down at the end of 2024, while Kellner will not seek re-election at the upcoming shareholder meeting and Deal will retire effective Monday.

Calhoun was known for his operational skills, communication style, and crisis management abilities. However, an incident involving an Alaska Airlines jet that experienced a piece falling off midflight on January 5th brought to light issues with Boeing’s manufacturing and quality control processes. This prompted the need for new leadership at the company.
