Ousted Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg, will walk away with $62.2 million, the company disclosed on January 10. He will however not get additional severance or a 2019 bonus and forfeits stock awards worth $14.6 million.
Muilenburg, who spent more than 30 years at Boeing, also has unexercised stock options, worth more than $18.5 million at the closing price on January 10, which he has held since 2013.
He was fired in December for the company's botched response to two crashes and failing to get the company's best-selling plane, the 737 Max jetliner back in the air.
Boeing board Chairman David Calhoun will take over as CEO on January 13. He is a former General Electric and Nielsen executive with a reputation as a turnaround specialist.
Calhoun, 62, will get a base salary of $1.4 million but potentially several million more in bonuses and stock awards, including $7 million if he gets the Max back in service.
The Max was grounded last March after crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. It has taken far longer than Boeing expected to fix the plane. This month, Boeing will halt production until it is clear when changes to the plane will be approved by regulators.
Muilenberg was named CEO in 2015 and presided over a rapid rise in the Chicago-based company's stock price. The shares have dropped 26% in the last 10 months, however, as Max's recovery stalled.
Months before Muilenburg's ouster, some lawmakers and relatives of passengers who died in the Max crashes had asked him to resign or take a cut in pay.
