Boeing appoints head for avionics business


Boeing has appointed Brendan Curran to lead AvionX, the business unit formed last year to develop and produce avionics and electronics systems.

Curran has worked for more than 20 years as a manager in the aerospace industry and joins from Crane, where he was president of the Aerospace and Electronics Group. Prior to Crane, he was vice president of business development, strategy and partnerships for commercial engines at Pratt & Whitney and before that, vice president and general manager of repair and supply chain for Hamilton Sundstrand.

The new role will see Curran work across Boeing’s commercial, defense and services businesses to advance the overall capabilities of the Boeing AvionX organization, the company said. He will be based in Plano, Texas, home to Boeing Global Services headquarters.

Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Global Services, said, “The success of Boeing AvionX depends on aftermarket technologies and innovations that exceed our customers’ needs, as well as developing avionics products that add value to our commercial and government platforms.

“Brendan’s extensive expertise, especially as it relates to aftermarket strategies, will enable us to harness incredible opportunities so we can provide our customers more value throughout the lifecycle of their investments.”
