Piasecki has since moved on to a new assignment as President of Boeing Japan. Her successor, Mike Cave, emphasizes the practical value of Alamdari’s expertise to the Business Strategy & Marketing organization.
“We rely heavily on the disciplined research and detailed analysis produced by Dr. Alamdari and her team as we manage the business every day, and also as we determine our long-term strategic direction,” said Cave. “Fariba’s expertise and the resources produced by her team will help airlines make business decisions on financing, revenue growth, productivity and business model optimization.”
Alamdari is decidedly unassuming about her new role at Boeing, and considers herself as much a student of the industry as an expert or thought leader.
“Our industry is in a constant state of evolution. The harder we work to understand the roots of that evolution, and the better we are at keeping pace with ongoing developments, the more useful our questions, conclusions, and projections will be,” said Alamdari.
“That’s why I love this industry. What you already know tends to keep its relevance, although there’s always something new to learn. Understanding and contributing to the progress of commercial aviation is an intellectually vibrant and inspiring endeavor.”
