Boeing Promotes Two Top Lawyers
Grant Dixton replaces Brett Gerry as general counsel. Gerry assumed the role of chief legal officer of Boeing earlier days ago. Uma Amuluru was also promoted to chief compliance officer, with the retriemnt of Diana Sands.
Amuluru was announced as vice president and CCO last week. Although there was no official announcement she was added to the company’s executive website. Prior to this she was Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer. Sands retires after 20 years at Boeing.
“I am excited to help Boeing proactively address new legal and compliance obligations arising from an increasingly complex global regulatory environment, and enhance its already strong compliance and internal governance program,” Amuluru said in a statement.
Dixton will serve as general counsel, senior vice president and corporate secretary. He will oversee all legal issues throughout the company and provide advice and counsel to senior leadership.
Dixton, who most recently served as deputy general counsel and corporate secretary, joined Boeing in 2006 as assistant general counsel. Before moving in-house, he served as associate counsel to President George W. Bush. He also worked as an associate at Kirkland & Ellis. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1999.
“It is a privilege to serve Boeing during this challenging time, alongside an exceptional team of talented lawyers and professionals doing incredibly important work for the company,” Dixton said.
