Boeing Expands India Management

Boeing Co. on Thursday announced an expansion of its management team in India by relocating two senior executives to New Delhi, as demand for new jets soars in the South Asian country.
Larry Coughlin, who was a director of strategic projects, has been named managing director of India operations for Boeing's commercial airplanes. Mike Devers, currently a director for Asian markets, has been appointed vice president of Boeing's defense-related business in India.
The changes will help the U.S. aircraft maker pursue new business opportunities and interact more closely with the government and industry groups in India, said Mark Hooper, a Boeing spokesman.
The announcement came weeks after Chicago-based Boeing nearly doubled its forecast for India's aircraft needs to 856 commercial jets worth more than US$72 billion over the next 20 years.
