Nearly a dozen senior executives from the Defense, Space & Security unit will relocate starting in January, including the division's chief executive, Leanne Caret, a spokesman said.

Boeing, the second-biggest supplier of defense equipment to the U.S. government, said the move was under consideration well before the presidential election.

Boeing currently has a few hundred employees in Washington supporting activities related to government relations, defense, space and security.

Over time, the number of jobs shifting to Washington from St. Louis could increase to about 50, Boeing said.
