Harold Carr, vice president of Public Relations and Advertising, has announced his intention to retire, effective June 1, according to Boeing Chief Executive Officer Phil Condit.

Condit also announced that Larry Bishop, currently vice president of Investor Relations, will succeed Carr. In addition to assuming Carr's responsibilities, Bishop will retain overall direction of the company's Investor Relations program, and his new title will be vice president of Communications and Investor Relations.
