Boeing Names NoVa Location as Global Headquarters, Establishes R&D Hub
Boeing has announced that its Arlington, VA campus will serve as the company’s global headquarters.
“The region makes strategic sense for our global headquarters given its proximity to our customers and stakeholders, and its access to world-class engineering and technical talent,” said Boeing president and CEO Dave Calhoun.
In addition to designating NoVA as its new headquarters, Boeing plans to develop a research and technology hub in the area to harness and attract engineering and technical capabilities. The hub will focus on developing innovations in the areas of cyber security, autonomous operations, quantum sciences and software and systems engineering.
“The future of Boeing is digital,” said Greg Hyslop, Boeing’s chief engineer and executive VP of engineering, test and technology. “Focusing our R&D and talent development in areas that support digital innovation will fuel the introduction of cutting-edge capabilities. This new hub in Northern Virginia will follow the successful implementation of this technology strategy in other regions.”
