Plano TX adding to its Legacy lineup of corporate headquarters as Boeing Global Services announces move

Boeing has selected a site in Plano, Texas, for the headquarters of its new Global Services business unit, which will be operational in July.

Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere said, “On behalf of the city of Plano, we are thrilled to welcome an iconic 100-year- innovative company like Boeing. Through the partnership with our city and the many amenities of Legacy West, we look forward to helping Boeing Global Services deliver on its mission.”

Boeing Global Services headquarters will be located in the Legacy West mixed- use development in northwest Plano, the company announced on PRNewswire on Wednesday afternoon.

Boeing Global Services President and CEO Stan Deal, several of his leadership team members and some support staff will be situated at the site, which will serve as a central hub for approximately 20,000 employees located around the globe.

Texas continues to be a global powerhouse in business expansion and relocation because of our economic policies that encourage industry leaders, like Boeing, to expand their operations here,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “As governor, I will continue to promote a low-tax and reasonable regulatory environment that removes barriers to entry and provides certainty for developing industries. I am proud to welcome Boeing’s new Global Services unit to Texas and look forward to working with them further to continue their expansion in the Lone Star State.”

Boeing selected the greater Dallas area because it’s centrally located within Boeing’s U.S. footprint, has good proximity to major operations for commercial customers and defense partners, and serves as a transportation hub that will allow the company to reach customers quickly and efficiently.

Deal, a veteran Boeing exec, said, “We are excited to establish the Global Services headquarters in Plano. We have a fixed focus on serving our customers worldwide, and this location assists in our mission of providing uncompromising service worldwide.”

Boeing will host an opening ceremony at the new location once Boeing Global Services is operational in July.

In November 2016, Boeing announced the Deal would be leading Global Services, which will be formed by integrating the services capabilities of the defense, space and commercial sectors into a single, customer-focused business. Operating as a third business unit of Boeing, Global Services will provide agile, cost-competitive services to commercial and defense customers worldwide.

Update on April 5: Boeing will be moving the global services division to Plano and landing at Legacy West.

Boeing Global Services will bring together core capabilities currently within Commercial Aviation Services and Boeing Defense, Space & Security’s Global Services & Support group. While some defense and commercial customer fleet support will remain within the two existing business units, the new unit will provide a broad portfolio of advanced services and incorporate the capabilities of various Boeing subsidiaries, including Aviall and Jeppesen.

Veteran Boeing executive Stan Deal was appointed in 2016 as president and CEO of Boeing Global Services.

Boeing announced Deal, 52, brings three decades of broad aerospace experience to his new leadership role. Since 2014 he has served as senior vice president of Boeing’s Commercial Aviation Services business, delivering consecutive years of record performance. Previously, he was vice president and general manager of Supply Chain Management and Operations for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, responsible for Supplier Management, Fabrication, Propulsion Systems and Quality groups. Deal joined the company as an engineer on the C-17 military aircraft program and also held senior roles in sales and marketing.

“Stan is an exceptionally capable and experienced leader, and he’s ideally prepared to stand up an integrated Boeing services business to expand our share of a global commercial and defense services market worth an estimated $2.5 trillion over the next 10 years,” Muilenburg said. “Substantial services growth is core to Boeing’s strategy as we enter our second century, and this move is a key enabler to accelerate our efforts and provide increasing value to our customers.”
