Bombardier Business Aircraft Re-organizes U.S. Sales Force

  • New U.S. structure emphasizes one point of contact philosophy
  • Pre-owned aircraft sales team now fully integrated within the new aircraft sales structure

Bombardier Aerospace today announced changes to its Business Aircraft sales team for the United States. The Learjet, Challenger and Global jet sales teams have been consolidated into a single U.S. sales force. Under the new structure U.S. sales directors are now responsible for all current production aircraft.

“The change in the U.S. sales force mirrors the current structure in our international sales team, whereby sales directors promote aircraft from all three product families,” said Bob Horner, senior vice president, sales, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “By creating one point of customer contact, I am confident that the new structure will serve to streamline and enhance the buying experience for our U.S. customer base - a market vital to our ongoing success in the industry.”

Leading the new organization, Brant Dahlfors, vice-president, sales, U.S. is responsible for the overall team which is now divided into three regions, each led by a newly appointed regional vice-president: Scott Westfall, regional vice-president, U.S. west; Ed Thomas, regional vice-president, U.S. central; and Peter Vasconcelos, regional vice-president, U.S. east.

Mike Fahey continues as vice-president, Learjet sales, with ultimate responsibility of all Learjet related sales activity worldwide. He also takes on responsibility for pre-owned aircraft sales worldwide. The pre-owned sales team is now fully integrated with the new aircraft sales force to offer customers the most seamless service possible.
