Flight Path

By Shane Amodei

October 2015

I'm a native son of a Plant 2 manufacturing manager and a World War II "Rosie the Riveter."

My Boeing path started as an emergent repair mechanic in Blue Streak, which led to a journey-level machinist job through Boeing's apprenticeship program. Boeing's Learning Together Program then offered another step forward by helping me get a bachelor's degree at a great university. This blend of technical and business background led me to a Supplier Management position, which ultimately allowed me an opportunity to be influential in the estimating and high-value contracting community.

My parents passed when I was a teenager, which could have limited my path in life. However, I found many opportunities at Boeing, which helped me be part of a success we can all be proud of.
