Wojick, a 32-year veteran of Commercial Airplanes who began his career as an aerospace engineer, moves to his new position from vice president, North America Sales for Commercial Airplanes.

“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.

Prior to his most recent position, Wojick led various regions worldwide within Sales including Leasing, Latin America, Caribbean, Asia Pacific and India. In addition, he led sales for used and VIP airplanes and helped launch Boeing Business Jets.

Early in his career, he held a number of assignments in maintenance and systems training, flight operations engineering, internal audit and marketing.
