Boeing boss Dennis Muilenburg gained $ 23.4 million reward last year. According to the aircraft maker, the salary increase of around 27 percent reflects the strong growth and development of the company. That was prior to the second fatal crash with a 737 MAX type craft in a short time that seriously embarrassed Boeing.
The basic salary of Muilenberg last year was 1.7 million dollars. In addition, he received a performance bonus of $ 13 million, in addition to other bonuses. His salary recalls the good performance of Boeing prior to the current misery. Boeing last year was good for a turnover of more than 100 billion dollars. In terms of orders, things went well. 737 Max is the most popular plane so far.
Due to Sunday’s crash in Ethiopia, the outlook is much less rosy. Certainly in view of the earlier disaster in October last year. Airplanes are grounded as a precaution and companies are considering canceling their order with Boeing.
