New York, NY (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
Ethisphere is pleased to announce that Dennis Muilenburg, vice chairman, president and chief operating officer for The Boeing Company, will be a keynote speaker at the 6th Annual Global Ethics Summit, taking place March 20-21 at the Crowne Plaza Times Square in New York. Mr. Muilenburg has been a leader in shaping Boeing’s focus on growing an ethical and compliant workplace culture. He has spoken at numerous industry events on how integrity and openness are key components of high-performing organizations and vital to a company’s growth and success.
“In our industry, lives really do depend on our commitment to integrity. People need to not only trust our products; they need to trust the people who build them. And, as the global landscape for ethical business conduct and compliance becomes more complex, maintaining ethical standards grows even more critical for companies,” Muilenburg said at a defense industry conference last year.
Prior to taking his current post at the end of 2013, Mr. Muilenburg was president and CEO of the company’s $33 billion, 58,000-employee Boeing Defense, Space & Security business. There he worked to ensure globally consistent ethical practices as the unit’s international business grew substantially.
Muilenburg will participate in a one-on-one discussion with Ethisphere Institute Executive Director, Chairman and Founder Alex Brigham for a candid dialogue on how business leaders across the c-suite can set the right tone at a global company and how effective leaders step in to overcome ethical challenges that may threaten the sustained success of a respected enterprise.
“The inclusion of Dennis Muilenburg as a keynote speaker at the 2014 Global Ethics Summit will provide great additional perspective on the role of senior executives in creating a consistent, global culture of ethics,” Alex Brigham, Chairman of Ethisphere, said. “He is in a unique position to help enhance and expand the conversation around leadership and tone from the top.”
Muilenburg is a member of the boards of directors of Caterpillar Inc., the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology). He serves on the steering committee of the Defense Industry Initiative, is a member of the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) board of governors and serves on the AIA executive committee. He also serves on the boards of trustees for the National World War II Museum and Washington University (St. Louis).
