Boe­ing names Hys­lop Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer


Boe­ing has re­cently named Greg Hys­lop its Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer (CTO), re­plac­ing John Tracy, a 35-year com­pany vet­eran who served as CTO since 2006 and an­nounced his re­tire­ment ear­lier this year.

In March, Hys­lop, 57, was named Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent, En­gi­neer­ing, Test & Tech­nol­ogy, as­sum­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for the de­vel­op­ment and im­ple­men­ta­tion of the com­pany’s en­ter­prise tech­nol­ogy in­vest­ment strat­egy, as well as Boe­ing’s re­search and tech­nol­ogy, test and eval­u­a­tion, and com­pa­ny­wide en­gi­neer­ing func­tions. He will con­tinue in that role, re­port­ing to Boe­ing Chair­man, Pres­i­dent and CEO Den­nis Muilen­burg and serv­ing on the com­pany’s Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil, while tak­ing on the CTO du­ties. The ap­point­ment is ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately.

“With a unique com­bi­na­tion of ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy lead­er­ship and busi­ness acu­men sharp­ened through many years as a pro­gramme man­ager, Greg has the right skills and ex­pe­ri­ences to help en­sure Boe­ing re­mains a world-class tech­nol­ogy com­pany in its sec­ond cen­tury,” Muilen­burg said. “Greg recog­nises the most ef­fec­tive tech­no­log­i­cal leaps are those that ex­ceed cus­tomers’ ex­pec­ta­tions for per­for­mance and in­no­va­tion at a price they can af­ford.”

Prior to his cur­rent as­sign­ment, Hys­lop served as Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager of Boe­ing Re­search & Tech­nol­ogy, the com­pany’s re­search and de­vel­op­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion. From 2009 to 2013, he served as Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager of Boe­ing Strate­gic Mis­sile & De­fense Sys­tems.

Hys­lop joined Boe­ing in 1982 as a guid­ance and con­trol sys­tems en­gi­neer on mis­sile pro­grammes. A mem­ber of the Aero­nau­tics Com­mit­tee of the NASA Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil, Hys­lop holds a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing and a mas­ter’s de­gree in math­e­mat­ics from the Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska, and a doc­tor of science de­gree in sys­tems science and math­e­mat­ics from Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity in St. Louis.
