The Boeing Company has announced the retirement of Bob Davis, vice president of Engineering and Technology, effective Dec. 31.
Davis, 65, has served in this position since August 1994. He has been with Boeing for 40 years and worked on virtually every 7-series commercial airplane program. Prior to his current position, he served as vice president of Engineering and Product Development for the Commercial Airplane Group.
"Bob has made many significant contributions to The Boeing Company," said Phil Condit, Boeing chairman and chief executive officer. "I have had the pleasure of working with him for many years, and have seen directly the outstanding technical leadership he has provided. He has an international reputation as a capable and wise engineer. We will miss him."
With the retirement of Davis, most of the roles he fulfilled will be assumed by David Swain, executive vice president of Phantom Works. This includes all internal coordination and external relations on technical matters. The Technical Education activities that Davis led will be consolidated with the Education Relations organization led by Director Linda Martin.
