“John is our most seasoned sales leader with in-depth knowledge of almost every Boeing customer worldwide,” said Conner. “His 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.”

In his new role, Wojick is responsible for the sales of all commercial airplanes and related services to airlines and leasing customers in all markets worldwide. His team’s duties include sales strategy, operations and customer relationships.
