Boeing has confirmed Heidi Capozzi, senior vice president of human resources, will depart the company in early April to pursue another opportunity.
Following an orderly transition, Wendy Livingston, currently vice president, corporate human resources, will replace Capozzi on an interim basis until a permanent successor is named.
Capozzi joined Boeing in 2009 and since 2016 has led the company’s leadership and learning, talent planning, employee and labour relations, total rewards, and diversity and inclusion initiatives.
“For more than a decade, Heidi has demonstrated a deep commitment to engaging and inspiring our people, strengthening our culture and supporting our business,” said Boeing chief executive, David Calhoun.
“During this time, she also built a world-class human resources team and helped elevate Boeing as an employer of choice, globally.
“We owe Heidi sincere gratitude for all she has accomplished, and we wish her well as she pursues a new opportunity.”
Livingston currently is responsible for leading a human resources team that supports several corporate functions.
“Wendy is a proven human resources leader who brings strong business and customer knowledge, extensive experience, and passion for employee and leadership development to this interim role,” said Calhoun.
Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading provider of commercial airplanes, defence, space and security systems, and global services.
Calhoun took over as chief executive earlier this year after the company was rocked by the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max following crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.
