Boeing unveils new executive performance metrics tied to product safety

(Reuters) - Boeing Co's board on Friday unveiled new performance metrics for executives tied to product safety and quality, following fatal 737 MAX crashes related to design defects and as it wrestles with repairs to flawed 787 Dreamliner jets. The planemaker said its Chief Executive Officer David Calhoun had a take-home pay of $269,231 in 2020 after he agreed to forgo his pay and incentive bonus in March last year as the COVID-19 pandemic set in, according to a proxy filing. Calhoun still earned $21.1 million in total compensation in 2020 after foregoing about $3.6 million, the company said

Boeing unveils new executive performance metrics tied to product safety

(Reuters) - Boeing Co's board on Friday unveiled new performance metrics for executives tied to product safety and quality, following fatal 737 MAX crashes related to design defects and as it wrestles with repairs to flawed 787 Dreamliner jets.

The planemaker said its Chief Executive Officer David Calhoun had a take-home pay of $269,231 in 2020 after he agreed to forgo his pay and incentive bonus in March last year as the COVID-19 pandemic set in, according to a proxy filing.

Calhoun still earned $21.1 million in total compensation in 2020 after foregoing about $3.6 million, the company said.

When Calhoun took over as Boeing's CEO in January 2020, he was also entitled to two supplemental equity awards worth $17 million, but they were not eligible to be vested last year, according to the company.

The disbursal of a portion of the equity awards is linked to the safe return to service of the 737 MAX jets, and the successful entry into service of the 777X aircraft, among other conditions, Boeing said.

Jailed Kremlin critic Navalny goes on hunger strike over lack of medical care

By Anton Zverev and Andrew Osborn MOSCOW (Reuters) - Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny went on hunger strike on Wednesday in an attempt to force the prison holding him outside Moscow to provide him with proper medical care for what he said was acute pain in his back and legs. The fate of Navalny, one of President Vladimir Putin's most prominent critics, is in focus after he said last week that being woken up by a guard every hour during the night amounted to torture and that his appeals for medical treatment had been ignored. In a handwritten letter addressed to the governor of his prison which was posted to social media by his team on Wednesday, Navalny said daily requests for a doctor of his choice to examine him and for proper medicine had been ignored
