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.
