Boeing’s Board of Directors separated the CEO and Chairman roles, which means Dennis Muilenburg is no longer chairman. The move comes amid the company’s ongoing struggles to return the troubled 737 MAX to service.

Last month, the company announced Muilenburg will stay on as CEO, president and director, but the board elected David Calhoun, current independent lead director, as non-executive chairman. The company said it wanted to separate the roles to “strengthen the company’s governance and safety management processes” and give Muilenburg more time to focus on running the company.

“The board has full confidence in Dennis as CEO and believes this division of labor will enable maximum focus on running the business with the board playing an active oversight role,” Calhoun said in a statement. “The board also plans, in the near term, to name a new director with deep safety experience and expertise to serve on the board and its newly established Aerospace Safety Committee.”

“I am fully supportive of the board’s action. Our entire team is laser-focused on returning the 737 MAX safely to service and delivering on the full breadth of our company’s commitments,” Muilenburg said in a statement of his own.

Airlines have extended 737 MAX flight cancellations and, as of now, the plane will not be returned to service until at least January 2020.
