Press Release


WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), a senior member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, today commended Boeing for its decision to fire its CEO Dennis Muilenburg for his mishandling of the company’s response to two crashes of its 737 Max aircraft that killed 346 people.  Congressman Cohen demanded that Muilenburg take some responsibility for the crashes and the response at a hearing in October, asking “What does accountability mean?” See that release here.

Congressman Cohen made the following statement:

“I commend Boeing for finally taking the proper action. The serial missteps and failures under the ‘leadership’ of CEO Dennis Muilenburg must come to an end for the flying public’s safety and for America’s economy. I hope this action results in a new leader who can right the errant Boeing ship.”
