Boeing Appoints New BBJ Boss

Joe Benson Leads Sales For Boeing’s Family Of Business Jets

Boeing has named Joe Benson as president of Boeing Business Jets (BBJ), the company’s VIP jet division. Benson oversees sales, support and operations for Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ portfolio of business jets operated by heads of state, VIP, corporate and charter customers -- i.e., people with serious bucks. 

“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 most recently served as BBJ’s deputy to the president and business director, leading key sales campaigns and business operations. He succeeds Erika Pearson, who was recently named vice president of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Sales and Marketing in Southeast Asia & Oceania.

Since joining Boeing in 2010, Benson has held leadership, strategic business development and sales and marketing roles across the company. He previously served for a decade as a U.S. Army officer after graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point. 

With more than 260 jets sold since the business was founded in 1996, Boeing Business Jets span a wide range of aircraft, including the BBJ 737 MAX, BBJ 787 Dreamliner and BBJ 777X, the jets can be customized for private, business or governmental use.

BBJs are supported by Boeing’s global service network.
