Boeing has named Ted Colbert as President and Chief Executive Officer of its Defense, Space and Security business. Colbert succeeds Leanne Caret who is retiring following nearly 35 years of exceptional service with The Boeing Company. Stephanie Pope has been appointed as president and CEO of Boeing Global Services (BGS), succeeding Colbert.
As President and CEO, Boeing Defense, Space and Security (BDS), Colbert will oversee all aspects of the company’s business unit that provides technology, products and solutions for defense, government, space, intelligence and security customers worldwide. BDS had 2021 revenue of US$26 billion (£19.8 million).
Colbert and Pope’s new assignments will be effective April 1. Until her retirement later this year, Caret will serve as Executive Vice President and senior advisor to the CEO, reporting to Calhoun, Boeing President and CEO, to support the leadership transition, business continuity and critical talent acquisition efforts.
