Boeing CTO Tracy announces retirement plans; new leaders named

Boeing Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Senior Vice President, Engineering, Operations & Technology John Tracy has announced his intention to retire after 35 years of service and 10 years as CTO, following celebration of Boeing’s 100th anniversary this summer.

Tracy will begin transitioning his portfolio of Engineering, Operations & Technology (EO&T) duties next month to newly designated companywide functional leaders who will report directly to Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg. Tracy will continue as CTO through Boeing’s July centennial celebration, with transition plans for that role announced at a later date.

“John Tracy has personified engineering and technical excellence at the leading edge of aerospace innovation throughout his 35 years with Boeing,” said Muilenburg. “As CTO for the past decade, his leadership, intellect and commitment to bringing together the best of Boeing ensured our success in providing high-value solutions to customers, operating our businesses more efficiently, and enabling investment in future innovation and growth. He will leave us a legacy of achievement that includes a new generation of diverse and talented innovators developed under his watch,” Muilenburg added.

Building on Tracy’s efforts that streamlined and unified core technical and operational activities within the company, Boeing is elevating the reporting for those activities directly to CEO Muilenburg under four newly designated company functions to place increased emphasis and attention on capabilities deemed critical to ensuring Boeing’s competitive edge in its second century.
Effective April 4:

•    Ted Colbert, who continues as the company’s chief information officer, is also named senior vice president, Information & Analytics. He will be responsible for information technology strategy, operations and processes, and will lead the company’s Information & Analytics initiative. He is based in Washington, D.C.
•    Scott Fancher is named Boeing senior vice president, Program Management, Integration & Development Programs. He will be responsible for management system deployment and oversight of all Boeing development programs, re-establishing a Boeing-wide program management function, and leading key company growth and productivity initiatives. He will be based in Chicago.
•    Greg Hyslop is named Boeing senior vice president, Engineering, Test & Technology. In this role, he will be responsible for the companywide Boeing Engineering function, Boeing Research & Technology and Boeing Test & Evaluation. He will be based in Chicago.
•    Pat Shanahan is appointed Boeing senior vice president, Supply Chain & Operations. He will be responsible for oversight of the company’s manufacturing operations and supplier management functions, including implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies and global supply chain strategies. He will also lead Boeing’s Environment, Health & Safety and Intellectual Property Management organizations. He will be based in Bellevue, Wash.
“These moves are the natural next steps to build on our core strengths and talent, expand One Boeing enterprise best practices and integration, accelerate innovation and competitiveness to win in the global market, and deliver greater value to customers today and tomorrow,” said Muilenburg.

Additional changes effective April 4 include:
•    Mike Delaney, Commercial Airplanes vice president of Engineering, will succeed Fancher as vice president of Airplane Development at Commercial Airplanes, reporting to Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Ray Conner.
•    John Hamilton, vice president, Safety, Security & Compliance at Commercial Airplanes, will replace Delaney as vice president of Engineering, reporting to Conner.
