Boeing has named Brendan Curran to president of Boeing AvionX, a newly created position.
Curran will be based in Plano where he will report to Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Global Services.
In his new post, Curran will work across Boeing’s commercial, defense, and service businesses to “futher mature the company’s aftermarket strategy,” according to a release.
AvionX was formed last year by Boeing to pursue development and production of avionics and electronics systems for commercial aircraft.
Curran comes to Boeing from Crane Co., where he was president of the Aerospace & Electronics Group.
“The success of Boeing AvionX depends on aftermarket technologies and innovations that exceed our customers’ needs, as well as developing avionics products that add value to our commercial and government platforms,” Deal said in a statement. “Brendan’s extensive expertise, especially as it relates to aftermarket strategies, will enable us to harness incredible opportunities so we can provide our customers more value throughout the lifecycle of their investments.”
The AvionX division brings in-house avionics production back into the Boeing fold in North Texas after it sold a plant in Irving 14 years ago where 1,200 people built hardware. At that time, Boeing also dispersed a unit in Everett, Washington, where 1,200 engineers designed the electronic controls for the company’s airliners.
