​Michael D'Ambrose, a director-at-large on the Society for Human Resource Management's Board of Directors, will become executive vice president of HR at Boeing beginning July 6. He will be responsible for the company's leadership and learning, talent planning, employee and labor relations, total rewards, and diversity and inclusion initiatives.

D'Ambrose will report to Boeing President and CEO David Calhoun, serve on the company's Executive Council and be based in Chicago. Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading provider of commercial airplanes, defense, space and security systems, and global services.

D'Ambrose comes to Boeing from Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), one of the world's largest agribusinesses and food-ingredient producers, with more than $60 billion in annual revenues. He has served as senior vice president and chief human resources officer at ADM since 2006. In that role, he led the continued modernization of all global human resources activities. His personal commitment to diversity and inclusion at ADM led him to broaden his focus and establish the multistakeholder advocacy group Together We Grow, which aims to attract a broader pool of diverse talent to the U.S. food and agriculture sectors.

D'Ambrose has more than four decades of business experience across multiple industries. Prior to working at ADM, he led global human resources teams at companies such as Citigroup, First Data and Toys R Us.

D'Ambrose holds a bachelor's degree in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University, where he chairs the advisory board at the Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies. In 2016, he was inducted as a fellow of the National Academy of Human Resources.
