Boeing Names Michael D'Ambrose as Human Resources Leader

Whilst the firm is laying off hundreds of employees that U.S.firm Boeing has named Michael D'Ambrose as the new executive vice president of Human Resources.   He replaces Wendy Livingston, who has served in an interim capacity since April and will take up the million-dollar role on  July 6th.

In this new job D'Ambrose will be responsible for the company's leadership and learning, talent planning, employee and labour relations at a time of great flux for the firm as hundred of employees will wither see their jobs axed or pay and conditions shrunk as the firm battles the after-effects of coronavirus. 

"Michael is joining Boeing at a critical time as we align our workforce with what will be a smaller and more competitive aerospace industry in the coming years," said Boeing President David Calhoun. "He brings to this effort and our other business priorities extensive experience leading through organizational change, passionate advocacy for diversity and inclusion, and commitment to identifying, developing and retaining the industry's top talent.

"I'd also like to thank Wendy for her tremendous leadership in recent months, particularly as we navigated the pandemic's initial impact on our business and people," Calhoun added. "I look forward to her continued support and success as we further strengthen our world-class Human Resources team and position Boeing as a global employer of choice."

D'Ambrose joins Boeing from ADM, one of the world's largest agribusinesses and a global leader in human and animal nutrition, with more than $60 billion in annual revenue. He has served as senior vice president and chief human resources officer at ADM since 2006.

While at ADM, D'Ambrose founded and led Together We Grow, a group of industrial, educational, non-government organization and legislative partners focused on driving diversity and inclusion – and building a strong talent pipeline – throughout the U.S. food and agriculture sectors.

D'Ambrose has more than four decades of business experience across multiple industries, spending the past 14 years at ADM. Prior to that, he led global human resources teams at companies such as Citigroup, First Data and Toys 'R' Us.
