In an email to staff seen by Reuters, Boeing Chief Executive Dave Calhoun said the company had named Steve Biegun as senior vice president of global public policy to "deepen our efforts in developing and executing a strategic global public policy plan while helping us strengthen important relationships with key stakeholders in the US and around the world."
