In these capacities, all three Boeing executives will report to Bernie Dunn, president of Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT). 

“These changes allow Boeing to apply more resources and expertise in the markets driving our business,” said Bernie Dunn. “Boeing is also able to further localize and expand its employee base by capitalising on the incredible talent available across the MENAT region.”
