Benson to bolster BBJ management team
Since joining Boeing in 2010, Benson has held leadership, strategic business development and sales and marketing roles across the company. He previously served for a decade as a US Army officer.

Boeing has named Joe Benson as president of Boeing Business Jets (BBJ), the company's industry-leading VIP jet division that brings the best of commercial aviation into the realm of personal air travel. Benson oversees sales, support and operations for Boeing Commercial Airplanes' portfolio of business jets operated by heads of state, VIP, corporate and charter customers.

“I am honoured to lead BBJ and continue our decades-long history of building the most capable and reliable business jets on the market,” says Benson. “As we look to the horizon, we are well-positioned to meet the strong business aviation demand by providing our customers an unrivalled travel experience and best-in-class economics.”

Benson's experience and industry relationships ensure strong leadership continuity for customers. Most recently, he served as BBJ's deputy to the president and business director, leading key sales campaigns and business operations. He succeeds Erika Pearson, who was recently named vice president of Boeing Commercial Airplanes sales and marketing in southeast Asia and Oceania.

Since joining Boeing in 2010, Benson has held leadership, strategic business development and sales and marketing roles across the company. He previously served for a decade as a US Army officer after graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point.

With more than 260 jets sold since the business was founded in 1996, Boeing Business Jets offers customers private jets that redefine comfort and convenience. With a wide range of high-performance aircraft, including the BBJ 737 MAX, BBJ 787 Dreamliner and BBJ 777X, the jets can be uniquely customised for private, business or governmental use. BBJs are supported by Boeing's global service network, the largest OEM-provided network of services, parts and maintenance.
