Boeing has named Tim Keating as executive vice president of government operations.
Keating, 56, has served as senior vice president of government operations since joining Boeing in May 2008.
In this role, he leads the company’s public policy efforts, including all US federal, state and local government liaison operations, as well as the Boeing Global Engagement organisation.
In addition to oversight of the company’s growing global philanthropic activities, he will continue in this capacity and to serve on the Boeing executive council.
“This well-earned promotion recognises Tim’s many contributions to our company over the past decade and reflects the critical role he and his talented team play every day in the long-term success of our business,” said Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing chairman.
“Tim has worked tirelessly to develop and strengthen relationships at all levels of government and in our communities to help ensure our collective voices are heard on issues important to Boeing, our people and our customers.”
In July 2017, under Keating’s leadership, the company launched Boeing Global Engagement, a realignment, strategy update and branding refresh of its philanthropic giving organisation to bring greater value to Boeing, its employees and stakeholders.
Prior to joining Boeing, Keating was senior vice president, global government relations, for Honeywell International, and chairman of the board and managing partner at Timmons & Company – one of Washington’s lobbying firms.
Earlier, Keating served the Clinton administration as special assistant to the president and staff director for White House legislative affairs.
