Boeing (BA -6.6%) CFO James Bell will retire April 1, to be succeeded by Controller Greg Smith. Bell has been finance chief since 2003 and was interim CEO before the appointment of Jim McNerney. "This should be a trouble-free transition," an RBC analyst says. "It also marks another step in the generational hand-over at Boeing."
