PARIS 2009: New Commercial Aircraft sales VP for Bombardier in Europe
Bombardier Commercial Aircraft president Gary Scott has announced the appointment of Steven Aliment to the newly-created position of regional vice-president sales–Europe. He will be based at Bombardier's regional support office near Munich.
"During his more than 25 years with Boeing, Steve gained a broad range of experience selling commercial aircraft throughout Europe as well as having led the sales efforts for Boeing Commercial Aviation Services worldwide," Scott remarked. "Steve brings valuable experience and background with the mainline carriers which, coupled with the time he spent in Europe, will allow him to immediately establish himself in his new leadership role and contribute to our ongoing sales efforts in this very important region."
Scott also announced the appointment of Kevin Smith as vice-president, sales–Americas. Smith was formerly VP sales–International and recently led the sales campaigns that resulted in firm orders for Bombardier CSeries aircraft from Lufthansa Group and Lease Corporation International Group.
Smith is also to serve as interim senior vice-president, sales, for Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, replacing Jim Dailly who has retired after a 33-year career with de Havilland/Bombardier.
