Bombardier has appointed Jianwei Zhang as chairman, Bombardier China.

The appointment of the seasoned professional reaffirms Bombardier's commitment to China where the company continues to offer market-leading business jets and provide aftermarket services at its strategically located service centre in Tianjin.

“I am very happy to welcome Jianwei back to Bombardier, and back at the helm of our important outpost in China. With his strong connections, his outstanding reputation and his deep understanding of China and the West, Jianwei is the perfect ambassador for our company and will provide a welcome bridge between the different cultures to further reinforce Bombardier's presence and impact in China's business aviation market,” says president and CEO Éric Martel. “His appointment, along with our active service centre in Tianjin, are testaments to our long term commitment to China as a key strategic market and the importance we place in supporting our customers in the region.”

Zhang, who was previously part of Bombardier's management team, will report to Martel. He brings more than 26 years of experience in the aerospace and transport industries, most of them spent in multiple roles with Bombardier.
