Boeing Co. said another high-ranking executive working on the company’s response to the 737 Max crisis will step down.

Michael Luttig, 65, will retire at year-end, Boeing said in a statement Thursday, three days after the planemaker announced the departure of Dennis Muilenburg as chief executive officer. Luttig, the company’s former general counsel, was reassigned in May to advise Muilenburg and the board of directors on legal matters related to two deadly Max crashes.
