Boeing has named Michael D’Ambrose as executive vice president of human resources, effective July 6. He will succeed Wendy Livingston, who has served in an interim capacity since April.
In this role, D’Ambrose will be responsible for the company’s leadership and learning, talent planning, employee and labor relations, total rewards, diversity and inclusion initiatives. He will report to Boeing president and CEO David Calhoun, serve on the company’s executive council and be based in Chicago.
“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 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.”
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. In that role, he led the continued modernization of all global human resources activities, as well as the enterprise transformation of ADM through significant organic growth and M&A activity over the past decade.
