Bombardier has made strategic changes to its international sales leadership team in order to further optimise its worldwide sales experience and capitalise on robust demand for its business jets.

Following his decision to leave the company to pursue personal opportunities, vice president, sales, international Christophe Degoumois has transitioned leadership to multiple sales team members. An accomplished sales leader, Degoumois leaves behind a solid foundation on which Bombardier has built its customer-centric values.

“We are grateful for Christophe's 17 years of dedicated service at Bombardier, as well as the team he has built, now ready to take on broader responsibilities,” says senior vice president, sales, new aircraft Peter Likoray. “Christophe played an important role in creating a positive experience for our customers and instilling a sales culture where customers' needs are central to what we do. We thank him for his stellar leadership and wish him all the best in his new venture.”

Ensuring a smooth transition, Emmanuel Bornand will take on the role of vice president, sales, Europe, Russia, CIS, Middle East and Africa. Since joining Bombardier in 2008, Bornand has established a strong track record. From his base in Europe, he will continue to leverage his extensive experience in different leadership roles to further strengthen relationships with clients and expand Bombardier's activity in the region.

Stéphane Leroy will take over responsibility for sales in Asia Pacific and China, in addition to his current role of vice president, sales, specialised aircraft. A 20 year veteran with Bombardier, Leroy's knowledge and industry expertise will allow him to continue to deliver strong results in his new expanded mandate. He has spent eight years in Asia and has accumulated over 30 years of experience in government-related sales activities.

Michael Anckner will add responsibility for sales in Latin America to his current responsibilities for fleet and corporate sales in his new role as vice president, sales, US corporate fleets, specialised aircraft and Latin America. Anckner, who has been with Bombardier for 11 years and was previously a sales director in Latin America, will continue to leverage his extensive fleet experience and knowledge of the region to further grow sales in Latin America and expand customer relationships worldwide.
