Boeing to replace 737 Max leader with New Mid-market Airplane boss

Facing more delays with the 737 Max jet's return to service, Boeing is installing one of its most trusted lieutenants to take over its best-selling but troubled single-aisle jet program. Mark Jenks, the leader of the Boeing's New Mid-Market Airplane division, will take over from Eric Lindblad, Boeing's 737 Max program leader at the Renton factory for the past year.
