Boeing Faces Quality Control Issues and Loses Top Executives Amid Alaskan Jet Incident

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun to retire at the end of 2024.

Boeing is facing heightened scrutiny and quality control issues, leading to the departure of three top executives. These include CEO Dave Calhoun, board chair Larry Kellner, and head of commercial airplanes Stan Deal. Calhoun will depart at the end of 2024, while Kellner will not stand for re-election at the upcoming shareholder meeting and Deal will retire effective Monday.

Calhoun was known for his operational skills, communication style, and crisis management abilities. However, the incident involving an Alaska Airlines jet where a piece fell off midflight on January 5th brought to light issues with Boeing’s manufacturing and quality control processes. This led to the need for new leadership.

As this is a developing story, updates on the situation will be provided as more information becomes available.
