Bill Hall, Sr., president of Hall Hospitality Group announces that Jack Jones, vice president and general manager of Boeing South Carolina, is the guest speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, Oct. 3.
Jones has overall leadership responsibility for Boeing’s South Carolina operations and facilities that also fabricate, assemble and install systems for the aft fuselage sections of the 787 and joins and integrates 787 mid-body fuselage sections from structural partners.
He received his bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Washington and started his career with Boeing as an industrial engineer in 1980 on the 757 Program.
Jones spent time on several commercial and military programs, including B-2 Stealth Bomber and Air Force One prior to his assignment in Everett as the Fuselage Responsibility Center Director.
In March 2008, Jones began an assignment as vice president of Final Assembly and Change Incorporation for the 787, leading the team responsible for assembling the Dreamliner at the Everett factory.
Before joining the Boeing South Carolina team in March 2011, Jones served as vice president of the Everett Delivery Center, overseeing Airplane-on-Ground, Paint, Pre-Flight and Delivery operations for the Boeing wide-body models (747, 767, 777 and 787) assembled in Everett, Wash. He was named to that assignment in October 2003.
