Uma Amuluru has been appointed as Boeing’s chief human resources officer and executive vice president of human resources, effective April 1.

Amuluru will be responsible for Boeing’s talent planning, global talent acquisition, learning and development, compensation and benefits, employee and labor relations, and diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Amuluru currently serves as vice present and general counsel to Boeing Defense, Space & Security, a position she has held since early 2023.

Prior to that, she served as Boeing’s first chief compliance officer, where she set up the company’s global compliance organisation, and served on Boeing’s executive council.

Before joining Boeing in 2017, Amuluru, who is a former federal prosecutor, held senior positions in the US government, including serving as counselor to the US attorney general and associate White House counsel to president Barack Obama.

In her new role, Amuluru will report to Boeing president and chief executive David Calhoun and serve on the company’s executive council.

Calhoun said: “Uma is a superb leader with a strong track record of building terrific teams and strengthening complex organisations.

“Continuing to invest in our 170,000 employees around the world will be a priority as their actions, voices and ideas make it possible for us to bolster our quality and earn confidence with key stakeholders.

“Her deep knowledge of our company and its people, including through her work as Boeing’s first chief compliance officer, makes Uma ideally suited to lead our efforts to support and develop our global workforce as we focus on Boeing’s path forward.”

Amuluru succeeds Michael D’Ambrose who will retire in July.

Calhoun added: “I want to thank Mike for his relentless and passionate advocacy for the people of Boeing, and for his leadership and dedicated service during an important and challenging period in our company’s history.

“Over the past four years, he has fostered a culture of care for our associates while steadfastly focusing on talent development programs, recruiting the best candidates and modernising our human resources organisation to further strengthen Boeing around the world.”
