In light of the persistent safety issues plaguing Boeing, the company has recently announced that three of its senior executives will be stepping down from their positions.

The individuals in question are CEO Dave Calhoun, CEO and president of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Stan Deal, and chair of Boeing’s board of directors Larry Kellner.

While Calhoun has revealed that he will be stepping down as CEO come the end of 2024, Deal immediately retired, and Kellner has decided not to seek re-election at the next shareholders’ annual meeting, per NBC News.

Boeing has been facing a series of safety concerns in recent months, which include incidents like a door hatch blowing off, a wing disintegrating, a windshield cracking, an engine catching fire, and more.

These incidents have raised concerns about the industry and have put a big question mark on Boeing’s commitment to passenger safety.

“The eyes of the world are on us,” Calhoun said on Monday, announcing his departure, per CNN. “We are going to fix what isn’t working, and we are going to get our company back on the track towards recovery and stability.”
