Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Steven Shepro left his position as deputy chairman of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization military committee on October 1, 2019. In this capacity, Shepro served as principal advisor to the NATO secretary-general and had impacts on policy, decision-making, strategy, and NATO’s defense capabilities. Boeing hired Shepro three months later to serve as vice president of strike, surveillance and mobility programs. According to Boeing’s website, the strike surveillance and mobility team “manages Boeing’s current and future portfolio of fixed-wing military and surveillance aircraft, including fighters and commercial derivative platforms.”
According to his LinkedIn profile as of October 13, 2020, Shepro “leads a diverse business team spanning systems experts, capture leaders, partnership growth and contract administration, while managing budgets for research & development and business development. Advises corporate leadership on global strategies.
”Shortly after Shepro’s departure from NATO, Boeing struck a $1 billion deal to upgrade NATO’s fleet of AWACS reconnaissance planes. According to the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), Boeing received an additional 6.9 million euros (approximately $7.6 million at the time) in contracts with NATO between October and December 2019.
