Boeing has named Kevin Brown vice president of Air Traffic Management (ATM) Programs. In this position, he will have broad responsibility for leading ATM efforts to collaborate with stakeholders in developing effective, global solutions for increasing aviation safety and security while increasing air traffic capacity.
Brown replaces Kent Fisher, who was recently promoted to vice president in the marketing organization of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Previously, Brown was the director of Puget Sound Engineering for ATM, serving as deputy to the vice president of Engineering and site leader for the business unit's facility in Bellevue, Wa. During his 22 years at Boeing, Brown has worked on the 777 and Next-Generation 737 airplane programs, International Space Station, Joint STARS and Boeing Joint Strike Fighter.
"I am thrilled that Kevin has agreed to accept this critical leadership role at Air Traffic Management," said John Hayhurst, president of Boeing ATM. "He has shown a tremendous capacity for building positive relationships across diverse organizations and integrating complex technical concepts with business strategies."
Because of requirements for frequent contact with key stakeholders in the region, Brown will relocate to the ATM office in McLean, Va.
