In his 40 years of service, Michael has worked at Archer Daniels Midland, Toys R Us, First Data Corp, Citigroup, Westwood One, The Travelers Mortgage, and Ingersoll Rand.

On the academic front, Uma holds a bachelor's degree in sociology from Duke University and a Doctor of Law from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.

Welcoming Uma in her new role, David Calhoun, President, and CEO of Boeing said, “Uma is a superb leader with a strong track record of building terrific teams and strengthening complex organisations. Continuing to invest in our 170,000 employees around the world will be a priority as their actions, voices, and ideas make it possible for us to bolster our quality and earn confidence with key stakeholders. Her deep knowledge of our company and its people, including through her work as Boeing's first chief compliance officer, makes Uma ideally suited to lead our efforts to support and develop our global workforce as we focus on Boeing's path forward.”
