Bell, 55, has been acting CFO since Sears was fired in November last year for allegedly violating company policy by discussing a job offer with a US Pentagon official while she was still working on Boeing-related matters.

Bell earned a bachelors in accounting at California State University and has held various senior auditing and finance positions at Rockwell, before joining Boeing in 1996 when Rockwell was acquired by Boeing.

Harry Stonecipher, president and chief executive at Boeing said Bell would be a key member of the company’s leadership team.

‘He is a proven, highly skilled manager who has intimate knowledge of our strategy and champions fiscal transparency.’ Stonecipher said.
