Boeing today announced Stephanie Pope has been appointed as the company's new executive vice president and chief operating officer.

In this newly created position, effective Jan. 1, 2024, Pope will report to Boeing President and CEO Dave Calhoun.

As COO, Pope will "oversee the performance of the company's three business units with responsibility for driving supply chain, quality, manufacturing and engineering excellence across the company," a Boeing statement reads. The business unit CEOs, the Boeing chief engineer and the president of Boeing Global will report directly to Pope, while the senior corporate functional leaders will continue reporting to Calhoun.

Pope currently leads Boeing Global Services and has overseen that unit since April 2022. Her successor will be named at a later date, the company said. Before that, she was chief financial officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. She's been with the company for nearly three decades.
