Boeing said it has hired retired Air Force Lt. Gens. Samuel Cox, Samuel Greaves and Steven Shepro.

Boeing said Cox will serve as vice president of Air Force systems within Boeing Government Operations, succeeding Chuck Johnson, who is retiring.

"Cox will lead Boeing's team responsible for understanding Air Force mission requirements, programs and priorities," the company said.

Cox previously commanded 18th Air Force.

Greaves, the former director of the Missile Defense Agency, has been named vice president and chief architect for space and launch.

Boeing said he will lead "engineering quality initiatives for both current and development programs in Boeing’s space portfolio."

Shepro has been named vice president for strike, surveillance and mobility within Boeing Global Sales and Marketing.

"He will lead a sales team representing portfolios including fighters, surveillance aircraft, mobility aircraft, commercial derivative aircraft, special air mission platforms and the new T-7A Red Hawk trainer," Boeing said.

Shepro previously served as deputy chairman of NATO.
