Boeing names four to satellite business leadership positions

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Boeing is continuing to ensure effective leadership across its Space & Intelligence Systems business with four executives being appointed to new assignments.

“At S&IS we believe that our customer’s mission is our mission. For this reason we have selected proven leaders with solid technical and industry experience,” said Craig Cooning, vice president and general manager of S&IS. “Program execution and mission assurance are paramount in this highly competitive industry, and these leadership assignments will ensure that we meet the commitments made to our valued customers.”

Jim Simpson replaces Steve O’Neill, who is retiring, as vice president of Commercial Satellite Systems, president of Boeing Satellite Systems International, and president of Boeing Commercial Satellite Services. He will oversee all Boeing commercial satellites, ground systems, and services.

Simpson was previously vice president of S&IS Business Development. Bruce Chesley, formerly director of Advanced S&IS, succeeds Simpson and will now oversee business development operations, personnel and budgets for national security, military navigation/communication, and civil/commercial space and intelligence programs.

Paul Rusnock replaces Claire Leon, who retired, as vice president of National Programs. Rusnock was previously vice president of S&IS Government Satellite Systems, a position that Dan Hart assumes.

Hart will oversee the Wideband Global SATCOM, Global Positioning System, Tracking and Data Relay Satellite, Payload Programs, Experimental Systems Group and Advanced Information Technology programs. He had been vice president and program manager of Strategic Missile & Defense Systems.

All four executives will be based in El Segundo. The changes are effective immediately.
