Aerospace giant Boeing recently appointed Uma Amuluru as vice president and chief compliance officer.
The company confirmed the appointment Thursday, though Amuluru’s executive biography on the company site reflected her new position earlier. In her new role, Amuluru is responsible for Boeing’s ethics and compliance program designed to enable business success through an organizational culture of integrity, ethical conduct, workplace and product safety, and compliance with laws and company policies.
Amuluru previously served as vice president and assistant general counsel for Boeing. Her being named chief compliance officer comes a month after Boeing announced it would combine its legal and core compliance programs into a single organization led by Chief Legal Officer and Executive Vice President of Global Compliance Brett Gerry.
“This approach will enhance Boeing’s already strong compliance and internal governance program through focused accountability for, and a more integrated approach to, Boeing compliance responsibilities,” the company said at the time. “It also will help the company proactively address new legal and compliance obligations arising from an increasingly complex global regulatory environment.”
Amuluru will report to Gerry, with a direct reporting line to new CEO David Calhoun and the board’s audit committee on compliance and ethics issues.
Boeing this month also elevated Deputy General Counsel Grant Dixton to senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. As general counsel, Dixton is responsible for legal matters across the company and provides advice and counsel to senior leadership.
