Doughtie retired from KPMG in 2020, after serving as U.S. chair and CEO since 2015.
“Boeing is a remarkable American company serving a critical role in the global economy,” she said. “I look forward to joining this distinguished board.”
Boeing Chair Larry Kellner called Doughtie a “highly-accomplished executive with a demonstrated track record of leading a world-class organization.”
“She will provide perspective reflecting her global leadership roles and experience advising clients on complex matters as well as significant risk management expertise,” he said of Doughtie. “We look forward to working with her.”
