Boeing Business Jets Names Joe Benson as New President

Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) announced Joe Benson as its next president, who will be leading Boeing’s ultra-long-range business jet division amid growing demand for business aviation.

Benson will replace Erika Pearson, who was named as the President of Boeing Business Jets in May 2022, to oversee sales, support, and operations for Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ portfolio of business jets. Pearson will become the vice president of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Sales and Marketing in Southeast Asia & Oceania.

“I am honored to lead BBJ and continue our decades-long history of building the most capable and reliable business jets on the market,” said Benson. “As we look to the horizon, we are well-positioned to meet the strong business aviation demand by providing our customers an unrivaled travel experience and best-in-class economics.”

Benson joined Boeing in 2010 and has held leadership, strategic business development, sales, and marketing roles across the company. He served as BBJ’s deputy to the president and business director, leading key sales campaigns and business operations.

BBJ has sold more than 260 jets, including BBJ 737 MAX, BBJ 787 Dreamliner, and BBJ 777X, since the business was founded in 1996. In November 2022, BBJ joined the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) to help meet the needs of its customers.
