Jenette Ramos

Boeing appoints senior VP for supply chain

CHICAGO, June 12, 2017

Boeing has appointed Jenette Ramos, a 29-year Boeing veteran with executive leadership roles in fabrication, supplier management, and environment, health and safety, as senior vice president, Supply Chain & Operations.

Ramos, 51, replaces Pat Shanahan, who has been nominated to serve as US Deputy Secretary of Defence.

Ramos, most recently vice president and general manager of Fabrication at Boeing Commercial Airplanes, now will oversee the company's Manufacturing Operations and Supplier Management functions, including implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies and global supply chain strategies.

She also leads Boeing's Environment, Health & Safety organization. She joins the Boeing Executive Council and reports to Boeing chairman, president and CEO Dennis Muilenburg.

"Jenette brings to this role a tremendous set of leadership skills and aerospace experience that spans nearly three decades, including deep knowledge of the entire Boeing production system and great passion for our people, products and customers," Muilenburg said.  “Jenette's most recent work to transform our commercial airplanes fabrication operations will serve her well in this new assignment, which is critical to our long-term success and growth and productivity goals."



Ramos is a graduate of the Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program, and she earned a master's degree in business from Seattle Pacific University and a bachelor's of science degree from Washington State University.

Shanahan, a 30-year veteran of the company, held executive leadership programs across the enterprise. Prior to his most recent position, he served as vice president/general manager of Airplane Programs at Commercial Airplanes, where he oversaw management of the 737, 747, 767, 777 and 787 production programs. He also previously led the missile defence and rotorcraft organizations within Boeing Defence, Space & Security.

"Pat's influence has touched just about everything we do at Boeing – across all of our commercial, defence and space programs, as well as how we design, engineer and produce them," Muilenburg said. "We will miss his leadership, creativity and problem-solving, but we are thrilled by the opportunity he has in front of him, and we appreciate his stepping up in service of our country." – TradeArabia News Service
