Boeing Names New Leaders in Oklahoma City and San Antonio

Mike Emmelhainz Succeeds Steve Goo, who is retiring, in Oklahoma City

Bryan Scott replaces Emmelhainz as head of Boeing San Antonio

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 21, 2015 – Boeing (NYSE: BA) veteran Mike Emmelhainz is returning to Oklahoma City to lead the company’s operations there while Bryan Scott is succeeding Emmelhainz as head of Boeing’s San Antonio activities.

The moves are effective at the end of this month. Both executives will report to Scott Strode, vice president and general manager of Aircraft Modernization & Sustainment in the company’s Global Services & Support business. The changes are prompted by the retirement of Steve Goo, whose 38-year Boeing career culminated with his term in Oklahoma City.

“In his time in Oklahoma City, Steve left a legacy of excellence during a period of transition and he will be missed,” Strode said. “Our employees in Oklahoma City and San Antonio provide critical support to our customers. Mike and Bryan are leaders capable of inspiring others to deliver excellence every day.”

Emmelhainz returns to Oklahoma City, where Boeing does modernization activities for more than 10 different types of Air Force aircraft, after a year leading Boeing San Antonio, where the company does both commercial and defense aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul services. He has worked for Boeing for more than three decades.

Scott, who will also lead Boeing’s operation at Cecil Field in Jacksonville, Fla., takes over in San Antonio after serving as the director of Integrated Quality for Boeing Military Aircraft. Prior to that, he was the quality manager for F-15 and Supplier Quality, and he started his aviation career as a crew chief for the United States Air Force supporting the F-15 A-C and T-37 trainer.
