Invested 28 years with the Boeing Company, worked as manager Commercial Airplane Group. My group approved and changes to production and out of production Aircraft representing the Fabrication Division. I work mainly in Renton WA (home of the 737 and former home to the 757). Moved on to support the design and project supporting the 767 Tanker program as Fab Div product review manager. Before I retired I left management and went into Supply Chain Mgt and a Lead for the 737 Change board. We worked with suppliers and design team to ensure parts were delivered at the right time to support the 737 Max and recently purchased planes. We also had to support the flight who flew Boeing planes daily throughout the world. Retired in 2016â?¦.
