Boeing’s Senior VP of Communications resigns

Niel Golightly, Boeing’s Senior Vice President of Communications, has resigned after an employee complaint that brought to Boeing’s attention an article Golightly wrote in 1987 while serving in the military, about whether women should serve in combat. 

Golightly said in a statement: “The article is not a reflection of who I am; but nonetheless I have decided that in the interest of the company I will step down.”

Boeing has initiated a search for his successor.  In the interim, the communications function will report to Greg Smith, Executive Vice President of enterprise operations and Chief Financial Officer until a permanent successor is named.
