James Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, will be the keynote speaker at Greater Spokane Incorporated's annual meeting Sept. 12.
Albaugh was president and CEO of Boeing Space and Communications from 1998 to 2002. In 2002 he became president and CEO of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, and in 2009 he took over Boeing Commercial.
"Boeing's recent announcement to build the new 737MAX in the Northwest gave our region's aerospace industry a huge lift," said Rich Hadley, president and CEO of GSI.
"Mr. Albaugh will be able to share his view of the future of aerospace in our region," Hadley continued. "Our local suppliers will hear from Boeing Commercial's top executive right here in Spokane."
