Boeing recently announced that Greg Hyslop will become the new chief technology officer (CTO) in place of John Tracy, who first became CTO in 2006 and has spent a total of 35 years with Boeing.
Hyslop will accept his new responsibilities while still fulfilling his duties as the SVP of Engineering, Test & Technology. He will gain new responsibility for creating and applying Boeing’s technology investment strategy. He is also in charge of the research and technology, evaluation and testing, and engineering functions throughout the company.
Hyslop’s direct supervisor will be Dennis Muilenburg, the chairman, president, and CEO of Boeing. Hyslop will also be part of the Executive Council.
“With a unique combination of advanced technology leadership and business acumen sharpened through many years as a program manager, Greg has the right skills and experiences to help ensure Boeing remains a world-class technology company in its second century,” Muilenburg said. “Greg recognizes the most effective technological leaps are those that exceed customers’ expectations for performance and innovation at a price they can afford.”
Muilenburg thanked Tracy for his years of service to Boeing, which maintains a large manufacturing and assembly footprint in North Charleston.
“John leaves a legacy of technical excellence, innovation and leadership,” Muilenburg said. “Boeing and the aerospace industry are better because John has been a part of them.”
