Calhoun was named CEO after Boeing’s board fired former CEO Dennis Muilenburg over his handling of two deadly crashes of the Boeing 737 Max, the company’s best-selling aircraft. Calhoun’s appointment came just before the Covid-19 pandemic shook the global economy and hit the aviation industry particularly hard.
Boeing reported an annual record loss for last year of nearly $ 12 billion. Dollars, as cancellations exceeded the new sales of jetliners, leading to thousands of job cuts.
Calhoun’s total compensation includes awards that were revealed when he took the job last January, including approx. $ 7 million in stock if the company hits milestones, including the 737 Max being put back into service, the commissioning of the long-running 777X and other targets, but these shares have not been earned.
It also includes $ 10 million in stock to leave its job at Blackstone Group to take the top job at the aircraft manufacturer last year and an additional $ 3.5 million in long-term incentives that have not been received.
