Penny Burtt has been appointed as the new President of Boeing’s Southeast Asia business, effective July 3.

Based in Singapore, Burtt will oversee Boeing’s strategy and operations as the company expands its regional presence. She will also serve as Director and Chair of Boeing Singapore Pte. Ltd. and President Director of PT. Boeing Indonesia.

Boeing has offices in Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The region is one of the world’s fastest-growing commercial airplane markets and its defence needs are rapidly expanding.

“I am delighted to join Boeing and lead our efforts in Southeast Asia, a dynamic region I’ve dedicated much of my career to,” said Burtt, a former Australian diplomat who served in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia. “Encompassing ten countries and nearly 700 million people, I look forward to expanding Boeing’s presence in this key market.”

Burtt is now head of Public Policy and Government Relations for the Asia Pacific region at Stripe. She was earlier Group CEO of Asialink, Australia’s leading centre for Asia engagement, and has also held Asia leadership positions at Visa and McKinsey & Company. She is a Board member of the U.S.-ASEAN Business Council.
