A corporate affairs leader with more than 25 years
of strategic communications and government relations experience,
including senior roles at Walmart and Disney, Brian will
oversee all aspects of Boeing’s communications, including
communications at its commercial airplanes, defense and services
businesses, media relations, external affairs, employee
engagement and company branding.

Brian will report to David Calhoun, Boeing President and CEO, and serve on the company’s Executive Council.

“Brian is an outstanding communications executive
with a proven record of leading global teams and helping several
of the world’s well-known companies and organizations tell their
stories, in addition to managing complex issues in the private
sector and at the highest levels of government,” said Calhoun. “I
am confident Brian will help us build on our ongoing commitment to
engaging our employees and stakeholders transparently as we
continue to navigate a challenging global environment and work to
position Boeing for the long term.”

Before joining Boeing, Brian worked most recently as senior
vice president and chief communications officer at Walmart and
before that as senior
vice president of public affairs at Walt Disney World.

He also served the U.S.
government in key roles, including as deputy chief of staff to
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at the U.S. State Department,
and assistant secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Homeland
Security Department.

In the early 2000’s, Brian served in the
White House under President George W. Bush, including two years as
Special Assistant to the President and Deputy White House
Communications Director for Planning.

He has also worked as
communications director for then-U.S. Rep. Rob Portman and as a
public relations and government relations consultant.

Outside work, Brian serves on the board of
Orlando Health, a not-for-profit healthcare system in the
southeastern U.S. with $8 billion of assets under management, as
well as the Institute for Public Relations.

He previously served
on the boards of the Trust for the National Mall and the Florida
Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.

Brian will be based at the company’s global
headquarters in Arlington, Va. He succeeds Ed Dandridge who
departed Boeing in June.
