Boeing to move defense HQ to D.C. area

In order to deepen its customer outreach, Boeing is moving its Defense, Space & Security business unit to Crystal City, Va. The headquarters will be across a highway from the Pentagon.

The move will take place in January, according to a company spokesperson.

Boeing anticipates potentially moving more than 50 employees from its current headquarters in St. Louis, Miss.

The company sees its existing location in Crystal City, Va., to be a better fit for deepening its outreach to customers in the Pentagon and NASA as well as stakeholders on the Hill and in the administration, the spokesperson said.

Closer to White House, too. This will facilitate visits to executives by Corey Lawendowski, emissary of President Trump, who will issue the boss's tongue lashings to major contractors on a monthly basis.
