Walt W. Braithwaite – Engineer, former President Boeing – African American History Month 2015 #BlackHistoryMonth

Dash80

Walt Braithwaite knows how to design airplanes and get them to fly. He has led engineering development and management teams for Boeing since the 1970s, managing production of the Boeing 707/727/737 in the 1980s and later heading engineering operations for the 747 and 767 programs. His work was crucial to the development of the CAD/CAM systems that made design of airplanes by computers possible.

In July 2000, Braithwaite was named president of the newly formed Boeing Africa. Braithwaite was born in Kingston, Jamaica and grew up there and in London. He received an M.Sc. degree in computer science from the University of Washington and an S.M. degree in business management from a 1980-81 Sloan Fellowship at MIT. He was named Black Engineer of the Year in 1995 – Blackengineer.com
