"John is our most seasoned sales leader with in-depth knowledge of almost every Boeing customer worldwide," Conner said in a statement.

In his role as vice president of sales, Wojick is Wojick is responsible for the sales of all commercial airplanes and related services to airlines and leasing customers worldwide.

Wojick began his career at Boeing as an aerospace engineer. He has led various regions worldwide within sales including Latin America, Caribbean, Asia Pacific and India. Wojick also led sales for used and VIP airplanes and helped launch Boeing Business Jets.

Wojick's "extensive knowledge of our products and services puts him in the best position to help our customers address their fleet and operational needs and be successful in today's competitive environment," Conner said.

In a separate message to employees, Conner announced several other management changes.

Here are those changes as noted in Conner's message:

Mike Bair will remain vice president of Marketing, and Lou Mancini will continue as senior vice president of CAS. John, Mike and Lou will all be members of the Commercial Airplanes leadership team and will report directly to me.

Separately, I'm pleased to announce that Laura Peterson, who most recently led State and Local Government Operations, will join the Business Development and Strategic Integration team in a newly created position leading China Business Development. In this role, Laura will work closely with our team in China to help advance our strategic partnerships with Chinese government agencies, suppliers and other key stakeholders. Laura's replacement will be named shortly.

Finally, Howard Chambers, vice president of Program Management, has announced his retirement. Pete Parsons, who has worked closely with Howard, will assume his responsibilities and report directly to Kris Fellrath, vice president of Business Operations for Commercial Airplanes. I would like to recognize Howard for all his work and dedication to Boeing. As a result of his expert knowledge, we have developed world-class program management skills, processes and expertise within Commercial Airplanes.
