Boeing Now Has a Liaison To Raise Concerns For Employees Who Work On Behalf Of FAA: WSJ

  • Boeing Co. BA has appointed Mark Fava as its new ombudsperson for employees working on behalf of the Federal Aviation Administration, reported WSJ.
  • Fava is a former U.S. Navy officer and airline operations official.
  • According to a Boeing representative, Fava has recently concentrated on regulatory issues concerning the company's commercial and military aircraft.
  • The creation of Fava's office was required by a settlement last year between Boeing and shareholders, who had sued the company's board related to its oversight of the 737 MAX's development and two jet crashes, writes WSJ.
  • The role is intended to provide an additional channel for Boeing employees acting on behalf of air-safety regulators to voice issues. These employees execute various roles related to FAA safety approvals and reviews.
