Outgoing Boeing CEO Grilled by Senate Hawley Slams Leadership and Calls for Accountability

Outgoing Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun found himself in the hot seat during a Senate hearing filled with bipartisan criticism of the company’s safety practices. Senator Josh Hawley didn’t hold back, questioning Calhoun’s leadership and bluntly asking why he hadn’t resigned yet.

Calhoun, unapologetic, expressed pride in Boeing’s safety record and defended his actions. However, Hawley’s sharp scrutiny and the display of photos of Boeing 737 Max crash victims served as a stark reminder of the human cost of the company’s failures under Calhoun’s watch.

Despite facing tough questions and public outrage, Calhoun’s lavish compensation and lack of real accountability have raised eyebrows. His retirement announcement has not quelled concerns, especially given the significant salary increase he secured for 2023, leaving many questioning the sincerity of his intentions to improve Boeing’s practices.

The hearing shed light on Boeing’s troubling history of safety mishaps and highlighted the lingering doubts surrounding Calhoun’s ability to lead the company effectively. As the search for his successor looms, Boeing’s reputation hangs in the balance, with regulators and lawmakers alike demanding greater transparency and accountability from the aerospace giant.
