CHICAGO, May 20—A week after announcing that vice president of communications Judith Muhlberg had been added to the company’s executive council, aviation giant Boeing has given new leadership roles to several senior communications executives.
 
Larry McCracken has been promoted to vice president of communications for Military Aircraft and Missile Systems, based in St. Louis. Currently vice president of public relations at Boeing’s Chicago world headquarters, McCracken will fill the position held previously by vice president Doug Kennett, who is joining the public affairs staff at Boeing’s Washington, D.C. operation.
 
Tom Downey has been named vice president of communications for Commercial Airplanes, located in Seattle. He is currently vice president of internal and executive communications at world headquarters in Chicago. Downey will take over from vice president Donna Mikov who will begin a medical leave later this month before returning to another company assignment.
 
Muhlberg also named three new vice presidents: Jo Anne Davis, who will join the headquarters team as vice president of internal and executive communications, replacing Downey; John Dern, who becomes vice president of public relations, replacing McCracken; and Mary Foerster, vice president of communications for Space and Communications in Seal Beach, Cal.
 
Says Muhlberg, “The leadership assignments and promotions we’re making place communications strength and experience where we need it, continue the development of people we expect to fill leadership roles well into the future, and accommodate career and personal decisions made recently by key members of the communications team.”
