Brian Hermesmeyer is Director, Freighter Customer Leader, for the Boeing Company. He is responsible for representing the customer to all Boeing freighter programs, as well as representing freighter programs to Boeing Sales & Marketing leadership. He also leads a multi-faceted team tasked with communicating the value of Boeing freighters to airlines, lessors and financiers around the world.
Brian joined the Boeing Company in 1996 and spent his first 5 years a Material Review Board Engineer on the 747, 767 and 777 programs where he supported manufacturing, flight testing and delivery of new aircraft. In 2001, he transitioned to supporting post-production modification programs, including leading on-site engineering teams for the Boeing 757-200SF freighter conversion program. This experience led to a role in 2005 as a Project Technical Integration Leader for all Boeing Converted Freighter programs, leading design requirement definition and engineering integration of the 747-400BCF, 767-300BCF and other product development studies. His strong technical background translated to a position in 2010 as the Product Marketing Director for Boeing Converted Freighters, where he helped build the foundation for the launch of the 737-800BCF program and market the value of the 747-400BCF and 767-300BCF to customers worldwide. In 2013, Brian shifted his marketing role to a Regional Director, where he has worked extensively with two major express carriers and general market freight operators. He has recently returned to Product Marketing as the company’s Freighter Customer Leader, leveraging 20+ years of technical and customer experience to advance the Boeing freighter family.
Brian received a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from Arizona State University in 1996, and he is now in his 25th year with the Boeing Company.
