Sears was dismissed after an internal investigation by Boeing concluded that he had violated company policy by discussing a job offer with Darleen Druyun, then a US Pentagon official, while she was still working on Boeing-related matters.

Druyun was also sacked as vice president and deputy general manager of Boeing’s Missile Defense Systems unit.

‘At no time did I engage in conduct which I believed to be in violation of any company policy,’ Sears said in a statement released by his lawyer.

‘At all times, I have faithfully carried out my duties on behalf of Boeing to the best of my ability. I am deeply disappointed that the company took the action it did.’

Lawyers for Druyun have declined to make any comment to date.
