Robert McMahon, the retired major general who heads the 21st Century Partnership, is leaving that post to lead the Boeing C-17 program at Robins Air Force Base.
That information was made public on Twitter by Morgan Law, of the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce. Law tweeted the announcement Friday morning.
Last week the 21st Century Partnership in Warner Robins announced McMahon was stepping down as president and chief executive officer of the organization.
The release stated McMahon was leaving the business in May to pursue other opportunities and would remain in the Middle Georgia Community.
McMahon is the former commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins Air Force Base.
A statement from Boeing said McMahon will lead the new C-17 Field Operations organization located at Robins and will report to Gus Urzua, Boeing’s C-17 Globemaster III Integrated Sustainment program vice president, also located in the C-17 GISP Combined Program Office.
In addition, McMahon will serve as the executive site lead over C-17 GISP work and Boeing employees at Robins. He will be responsible for the total business execution for the former Field Services and Maintenance and Modifications organizations, and more than one thousand employees worldwide.
McMahon will be accountable to continue Boeing’s mission to provide world-class C-17 field service and support to the U.S. Air Force, the Air Force Reserve Command, Air National Guard and our international partners.
