“The Board of Directors decided that a change in leadership was necessary to restore confidence in the company moving forward as it works to repair relationships with regulators, customers, and all other stakeholders,” Boeing (NYSE:) said in a statement on Monday.

Boeing (NYSE:) said it has named current Chairman, David L. Calhoun, as Chief Executive Officer and President, effective January 13, 2020. Calhoun will remain a member of the Board. In addition, Board member Lawrence W. Kellner will become non-executive Chairman of the Board effective immediately.

Chief Financial Officer Greg Smith will serve as interim CEO during the brief transition period, while Calhoun exits his non-Boeing commitments.

The company said a week ago that it would halt production of the 737 MAX, citing a massive inventory backup that it can’t shift as long as regulators refuse to declare it airworthy.
