Sioux Center Native, Boeing CEO Steps Down
December 23, 2019 10:31am
Boeing’s CEO, a Sioux Center native, is resigning amid ongoing problems at the company over the troubled Max 737 aircraft. The aircraft manufacturer announced today (Monday) that Dennis A. Muilenburg, a 1981 Sioux Center High School graduate, is stepping down immediately. The board's current chairman David Calhoun will officially take over on January 13.
The board said a change in leadership was necessary to restore confidence in the company as it works to repair relationships with regulators and stakeholders. The Max was grounded worldwide in March after the second of two crashes of its jet, killing a combined total of 346 people.
Calhoun says he strongly believes in the future of Boeing and the 737 Max.
The leadership change follows Boeing's announcement last week that it would halt Max production in January.
Muilenburg, the keynote speaker, along with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, were in attendance at the ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony of the Sioux County Regional Airport November 14, 2018.
