The Boeing Company board of directors nominated Nikki Haley to be elected as a director at the company’s annual meeting of shareholders on April 29.
Ms Haley is the former US ambassador to the United Nations, the first female governor of South Carolina, and a three-term legislator in the South Carolina House of Representatives.
Dennis Muilenburg, chairman, president and chief executive officer for Boeing, said: “Boeing will benefit greatly from Ambassador Haley’s broad perspectives and combined diplomatic, government and business experience, to help achieve our aspiration to be the best in aerospace and a global industrial champion.”
Ambassador Haley said it’s an honour to have the opportunity to contribute to Boeing’s continued success as an industry leader and a great American company.
She added: “Not only is Boeing the largest aerospace company in the world and America’s biggest exporter, it also understands the importance of teamwork and building community through its network of suppliers in all 50 states and around the world.”
