Boeing promotes defense chief to chief operating officer

Boeing Co (BA) on Wednesday promoted Dennis Muilenburg, head of its defense division, to the post of president and chief operating officer, a move that company insiders and analysts said makes him “heir apparent” to Chief Executive Jim McNerney. Muilenburg, 49, and Ray Conner, the 58-year old head of the Boeing Commercial Airplanes unit, were both named vice chairmen, Boeing said in a statement. Boeing said Muilenburg would move to Chicago headquarters and share oversight of operations with McNerney.
