Boeing Names Hinshaw Chief Information Officer

Boeing : 18 June, 2007  (New Product)
Boeing has named John Hinshaw chief information officer and vice president of the company's Information Technology organization. Hinshaw, who was formerly chief information officer of Verizon Wireless, is replacing Scott Griffin, who has announced his retirement after 28 years at Boeing.
Hinshaw, 36, will report to John Tracy, senior vice president of Engineering, Operations & Technology, starting June 29. He will lead the Information Technology organization and be responsible for all IT strategy, systems, infrastructure, architecture, processes and people companywide.

'Scott Griffin's excellent leadership has established a great foundation and team for moving this company forward,' said Tracy. 'The depth, breadth and success of John's experience should add new dimensions and momentum to our efforts to become a more integrated and efficient global enterprise.'

As the CIO of Verizon Wireless, Hinshaw was responsible for leading the information technology organization supporting over 60 million customers. His responsibilities included managing the company's IT portfolio, including global supply chain, billing, sales, and customer care systems. He was also responsible for successfully completing a significant consolidation of the company's core systems.

Hinshaw joined Verizon (formally Bell Atlantic) in 1993 and worked in a number of increasingly responsible IT positions, including vice president, Information Technology and chief information officer for Verizon Wireless South Area; vice president of Information Technology at Verizon Wireless HQ; and director of Information Systems for Bell Atlantic Mobile.

Prior to Verizon, Hinshaw also held IT positions with Accenture as well as the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Department of Defense. He has a bachelor's degree in computer information systems from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Griffin, 52, is retiring July 1. He has been Boeing CIO since 1999, and his 28 years of service to the company have included positions in customer support, manufacturing and information technology in both the commercial and defense business units. He will be pursuing a master's degree in non-profit leadership at Seattle University, starting this summer.
