(Reuters) – Boeing (NYSE:) Co said on Thursday it had named Heidi Grant, director of the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), as the vice president of business development.

Grant, who will join the U.S. planemaker on Nov. 8, will lead the company’s defense, space and government services sales teams.
