Boeing (BA) shuffles a few executives around, naming 787 chief engineer Mike Sinnett vice president of product development and installing 777 chief engineer Bob Whittington as the Dreamliner's new chief project engineer. Of course the move has nothing to do with the Dreamliner's problems — it's merely "intended to give the people involved an opportunity to broaden their experience," CNBC says, summarizing a company memo. Three other executives are part of the shakeup.
