Rebecca Muilenburg is the loving and supportive wife of Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg.
Rebecca Muilenburg’s husband was born Dennis A. Muilenburg in 1964. The Iowa native recently urged the new Republican administration of President-elect Donald Trump to preserve and reopen, not abolish the U.S. government’s Export-Import Bank.
Muilenburg joined Boeing’s engineering ranks as an intern in Seattle in 1985. He earned a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from Iowa State University and a master’s in aeronautics and astronautics from the University of Washington.
He spent the first 15 years of his career in the Puget Sound region, supporting the commercial airplanes and defense businesses.
He held numerous program management and engineering positions of increasing responsibility early in his career, including on the company’s High Speed Civil Transport, F-22, Airborne Laser and Condor reconnaissance aircraft.
Muilenburg was instrumental in building the Boeing Combat Systems and Future Combat Systems program. Much of the software in their defense portfolio today has origins in the FCS program.
As president and COO, Muilenburg shared in the day-to-day oversight and support of the company’s aerospace business operations, with a focus on the company’s growth and productivity initiatives, key customer relationships and leadership-development programs. He also served on the company’s Executive Council.
After 30 years of service to Boeing, Muilenburg became the company’s 10th chief executive in July 2015. Earlier this year, it was also announced that Muilenburg would become Boeing’s chairman.
Muilenburg became chairman of the board in March 2016, chief executive officer in July 2015 and president in December 2013.

He sponsors the chaired professorship, Dennis and Rebecca Muilenburg Professor of Aerospace Engineering, which is currently held by Dr. Christina Bloebaum.
