Boeing Commercial Airplane Group executive vice president Nancy Bethel today announced that Pat Coulter, former vice president of Corporate Communications at Bell Atlantic, has joined Boeing Commercial Airplane Group as vice president of Communications. Coulter will lead all aspects of communications for the commercial jetliner manufacturer.

In his former position with Bell Atlantic, the East Coast telecommunications company, Coulter supported the merger between Bell Atlantic and NYNEX, the New York telecommunications company. Before joining Bell Atlantic, Coulter was director of Corporate Communications at the Raytheon Co.
