Boeing: today first face-to-face between Muilenburg and shareholders
General Assembly in Chicago to evaluate the future of the company
For the first time since the two incidents at the B-737 MAX, of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines, today the Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg will come to face with the shareholders of the US aerospace company, in an assembly that its main objective will be to strengthen investor confidence in the producer. Outside the meeting place in Chicago there will be a protest sit-in by some family members of the 346 victims of the two air disasters that occurred on October 29th and March 10th to "raise awareness" of the shareholders, the management of Boeing and the public opinion to ensure that every problem can be solved and that justice be done.
The CEO Muilenburg will speak at the end of the annual shareholders' meeting, where he will also explain the next steps that will be taken by Boeing for the re-certification of the B-737 MAX and to generate again a climate of trust around the plane by the regulatory bodies, airlines and passengers. Shareholders will also be responsible for the financial prospects for the current year, as well as the request to split the role of CEO with that of chairman so as to give greater power to investors in the "control" of the company.
