Michael  (above) will report directly to Alain Bellemare, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. “I am very pleased to announce Michael’s appointment to Bombardier’s senior leadership team,” said

Mr Bellemare. “His strong leadership skills, deep experience in the aerospace industry and track record of execution make him the right choice to lead Bombardier’s Aerostructures business as we continue to transform our Company.”

Michael Ryan joined Bombardier through the acquisition of Short Brothers plc in 1989, and has held a number of leadership positions including General Manager, Advanced Composites Production, General Manager, Fabrications and General Manager, Procurement for Bombardier Aerospace.
