Danny Di Perna has been appointed as the new president of Bombardier Transportation. He will replace Laurent Troger, who has informed the company of his intention to resign and pursue opportunities outside the company. Di Perna, who joined Bombardier in 2018 and most recently led Bombardier’s Aerostructures and Engineering Services (BAES) segment, brings more than 30 years of industrial experience to this new role.
“Danny is an exceptional and engaging leader with a proven record of leading complex industrial organizations,” said Alain Bellemare, president and chief executive officer at Bombardier Inc. “His demonstrated success driving operational efficiency, improving quality and delighting customers make him the right person to follow Laurent and accelerate Bombardier Transportation’s transformation.”
“I’d like to thank Laurent for his many contributions to Bombardier over the past 15 years, including his exceptional leadership while serving as President of our rail segment for the past three years,” continued Bellemare. “During this time, Transportation significantly grew its backlog, optimized its footprint and executed an aggressive production ramp-up. As a result of Laurent’s leadership, Bombardier Transportation is a stronger, more efficient company poised for solid growth.”
Bombardier veteran Paul Sislian has been appointed president of Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services to succeed Di Perna.
Bombardier Transportation includes the company’s rail industry portfolio.
