David Calhoun installed as CEO of Boeing, pointing out one area of opportunity is greater transparency and accountability:
Calhoun kicked off his new job with a 13 January letter to all Boeing staff in which he lays out priorities and promises to improve the company’s transparency and commitment to safety.
“We have work to do to uphold our values and to build on our strengths. I see greatness in this company, but I also see opportunities to be better,” Calhoun’s letter says. “That includes engaging one another and our stakeholders with greater transparency, holding ourselves accountable to the highest standards of safety and quality and incorporating outside-in perspective on what we do and how we do it.”

D. Calhoun also reportedly spoke of "humility".
It is wishful thinking on his part. How ironic, a person coming "directly" from GE and who sits on the board of directors since 2009 who will clean up with karsher the decisions which go back at least for 15 years, in other words the arrival of J. Mc Nerney including D. Muilenburg is the "worthy" heir but also victim, because after disclosure of shocking mails, prove that this deleterious atmosphere of the employees has been done since that time under Mc Nerney.
We remember that the battery problems that occurred on the 787 Dreamliner's in 2013 occurred under Mc Nerney.
The latter was very lucky, he was CEO for 10 years (2005-2015) it's long to have enough time to gangrene an industry but not enough to get caught in the bag because he left before MAX's 1st flight.
Muilenburg (2015-2019) wanted to go in the same direction but in worse still, we feel that stupidity has reached its climax. These emails arise the next day when he was urged to leave without delay for the good of the company ...
Where Muillenburg fell while dragging Boeing to hell is that he wanted to hide all this cultivated arrogance by pressing on the FAA and putting MAX back into service as quickly as possible as a priority absolutely rather than cleaning from the inside
It was not good for him, it illustrates well the arrogance and the gangrene which gnaws at him cause he knew his time was running out
Despite was a young prodigy by integrating the company very young...
I think is a good news for the industry, the passengers and the airlines.
Boeing is changing now and D. Calhoun, elected by the board of directors understood that it cannot and should not last
A few days ago, Boeing said that there would be sanctions against those who have exchanged these irresponsible emails. These employees deserve to be fired without notice and I hope so, because from an ethical, human and industrial point of view it is inadmissible and unacceptable!
This is the legacy that Mc Nerney and Muillenburg left behind, and it could have lasted longer. But the bad acquisition turned against Muillenburg so that fate would allow Boeing to reform and change its culture ...
It is a human problem but when arrogant people who indulge in their excess it should not be surprising to see them exchange shocking mails end up getting burned too...
Anyway, this one reflects well the world "hyper capitalist" of which we live, because many companies are corrupt.
Watch Ghosn in the Renault-Toyota case (2018-2020), the Volkswagen Diesel gate in 2015. But in aeronautics it is much more delicate because there are always dead when a crash occurs at high altitude ...
This will certainly serve as a lesson for Airbus too who was lucky not to fall into this spiral of exaggerated arrogance
The success of its narrowbody A320 has assured it serenity and "eternal" stability ... https://www.latribune.fr/entreprises-fi ... 37041.html https://boeing.mediaroom.com/news-relea ... tem=130600
