Boeing Said to Replace Dailey as Commercial-Jet Sales Chief

Aug. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Boeing Co. is replacing its commercial-jet sales chief, Marlin Dailey, a month after rival Airbus SAS made inroads into one of the U.S. planemaker’s top customers, American Airlines, a person familiar with the matter said.

Ray Conner, who had been head of sales before Dailey’s appointment to the job in December 2008, will return to the post, said the person, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. Dailey has been offered another job with Boeing, the person said. The move may be announced today, the person said.

Mark Hooper, a spokesman at Chicago-based Boeing’s commercial headquarters, declined to comment.

American, which had been an exclusively Boeing customer, last month split an order for 460 new jets between the two planemakers.
