What Do Investors Want to Hear From Boeing CEO at Hearing?

Boeing Co. Chief Executive Officer Dennis Muilenburg plans to kick off a pair of critical appearances before U.S. lawmakers by admitting the planemaker made mistakes on the 737 Max, even as a fresh allegation emerged that the company withheld key safety information ahead of two fatal crashes.

Muilenburg is the first company official to publicly testify on Boeing’s role in the tragedies that killed 346 people and badly dented public confidence in the manufacturer. Riding on his performance this week are the industrial titan’s reputation and his own tenure at the helm of the world’s largest aerospace company amid heightened scrutiny from the board and investors.
