Shareholders for the Chicago-based aircraft, rocket and satellite manufacturer will consider Haley's appointment at their April 29 meeting.

Haley, 47, is the first female governor of South Carolina and a three-term legislator in the South Carolina House of Representatives.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Tuesday that the company will benefit from Haley's combination of diplomatic, government and business experience.

According to recent reports, Haley has started a new group called 'Stand for America, ' which will push for domestic and global policies.

Haley resigned as U.S ambassador to the U.N.in December.

On Friday, Trump announced that he was nominating Kelly Craft, his envoy to Canada, to be the next USA ambassador to the United Nations. Her counterparts at the United Nations saw her as a voice of clarity in the Trump administration.

On Monday, Haley announced the formation of her "Stand for America" advocacy group to promote public policies "that strengthen America's economy, culture, and national security". Haley said that she got to see the firsthand experiences of the challenges U.S. has to face around the globe.

Her group, "Stand for America", endorses "taking a more aggressive approach to China's unfair trade practices" and holding "China's feet to the fire to help get rid of North Korea's nuclear weapons", according to its website.

If elected by Boeing shareholders, she would help guide the future of the largest USA exporter, with a network of suppliers across the United States and the world.

Haley's nomination as a director comes as state officials hope to persuade Boeing to build its next jet in North Charleston, where it now builds the 787 Dreamliner.

According to the company's 2018 proxy statement, Boeing directors earned from $123,600 to more than $409,600 each in total compensation in 2017. Board members, too, received $180,000 in Boeing stock in 2017.
