Guy Hachey retires as Bombardier restructures
Bombardier is reorganizing into four business segments.
Bombardier has restructured the company into four business segments which report directly to Pierre Beaudoin, president and chief executive officer, Bombardier Inc.
The segments are Transportation, Business Aircraft, Commercial Aircraft with a new unit called Aerostructures and Engineering Services.
The heads of the business segments remain Lutz Bertling at Transportation, Eric Martel at Business Aircraft and Mike Arcamone at Commercial Aircraft. The head of the new Aerostructures and Engineering Services business segment will be appointed in the next few weeks.
As a result of this reorganization, Guy Hachey, the president and COO of Bombardier Aerospace, is retiring.
Beaudoin says: “Guy led Bombardier Aerospace during an important period in its history. I wish to thank him for his contributions over the past six years.
Bombardier Aerospace group functions and the customer services division will be absorbed into the three aerospace business segments. The company says this will cut costs.
Beaudoin says: “This marks another step in Bombardier’s evolution. Combined with the implementation of OneBT, the recent Bombardier Transportation reorganisation, the new Aerospace organizational structure will enable us to be more agile and flexible in addressing customer needs, while increasing our focus on growth areas. The creation of the Aerostructures and Engineering Services business segment will also help us market our expertise in this field to the aerospace industry, thus generating new revenues. We are setting the stage to take full advantage of our investments and the tremendous growth potential of our new products.”
The new structure will be fully in place by January 2015.
