Boeing names new business leader for Turkey

Boeing announced July 23 that Bernie Dunn will succeed Boeing Turkey president Greg Pepin, who will retire from the company in October.

Dunn will be responsible for coordinating all Boeing business activities in Turkey and report to Shep Hill, president, Boeing International and senior vice president, Business Development and Strategy.

“Bernie has an accomplished background in international business and defense that spans three decades. He will make a strong addition to the company and build on our successes in Turkey,” said Hill. “He will continue the outstanding work that Greg started more than a decade ago and strengthen Boeing’s presence, expand local partnerships and grow our business in Turkey.”

Dunn joins Boeing from ITT Defense International, where he was vice president of Business Development for Middle East and Africa and responsible for coordinating and overseeing marketing and business development activities. Before that, Dunn was a career officer in the U.S. Army and served in a variety of infantry command and staff positions in Germany, the U.S. and the Middle East.

Pepin, 62, joined Boeing in 1999 as country director for Turkey after serving in the U.S. Army for 26 years. In 2002, he was appointed president of Boeing Turkey and established the company’s first office in Ankara. He successfully facilitated the sale of Boeing products and helped many Turkish companies join Boeing’s global supplier network. He also led Boeing’s involvement in community support initiatives. Since 2000, Boeing has undertaken 188 corporate citizenship projects, touching the lives of more than 135,000 children and garnering widespread recognition from the government and people of Turkey.

“Greg had an unrelenting focus on expanding Boeing’s business and presence. His passion for our company, Turkey and the Turkish people made him an exceptional leader in every way,” added Hill.

Boeing maintains a long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship with Turkey. Since the mid 1940s, Boeing has been a provider of commercial jetliners to Turkish airlines, a supplier of defense products to the Turkish armed forces and a partner with the Turkish aerospace industry.
