Boeing appoints a new Chief Strategy Officer And hires the first-ever Chief Sustainability Officer

The Boeing Company named B. Marc Allen as chief strategy officer and Senior Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development, reporting to President and CEO David Calhoun. The company also announced Christopher Raymond as the company’s Chief Sustainability Officer, a newly created position reporting to Executive Vice President, Enterprise Operations, and Chief Financial Officer Greg Smith. The appointments are effective Oct. 1.

Allen, first appointed to the company’s Executive Council in 2014 as President of Boeing International, will now take on responsibility for the enterprise’s overarching strategy, including long-term planning; global business and corporate development; and strategic investments, acquisitions, and divestitures. He most recently served as president of Embraer Partnership and Group Operations, leading the associated business and integration teams, before terminating the partnership in April 2020. Before joining the Executive Council, Allen served in leadership positions across the enterprise as president of Boeing Capital Corporation, president of Boeing China, vice president for Global Law Affairs, and general counsel to Boeing International.

As Boeing’s first chief sustainability officer, Raymond will be responsible for further advancing Boeing’s approach to sustainability that is focused on environmental, social, and governance priorities, stakeholder-oriented reporting, and company performance.

Raymond first gained responsibility for Boeing’s sustainability strategy in April 2020 when his role leading strategy was expanded to integrate corporate development and deepen the company’s focus on environmental and social considerations. Previously, he led integration efforts for the potential strategic partnership between Boeing and Embraer, served as Vice President and General Manager of Autonomous Systems within Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) and other defense business segments, and led BDS business development and strategy.

Boeing employs more than 160,000 people worldwide and leverages the talents of a global supplier base.
