Bombardier Aviation recently announced key leadership appointments at its Tucson and Fort Lauderdale service facilities.
Marc Beaudette, who previously led the Bombardier Tucson Service Center, has been appointed general manager of the Fort Lauderdale facility and will continue in his success to further elevate the customer experience and drive the company’s customer-centric culture. With 30 years of experience at Bombardier, Beaudette has knowledge of both production and maintenance operations and an understanding of interiors and completions. He will lead the eventual move from their Fort Lauderdale Service Center to their new facility at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.
“Marc is an accomplished Bombardier veteran and has made significant improvements at our Tucson Service Center in the last three years, notably the positive impact on the customer experience,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, vice president and general manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Aviation. “I know he will be influential in leading the evolution of our new service facility in Miami-Dade County.”
Appointed to the role of general manager of the Tucson Service Center is Michel (Mike) Menard. With 30 years of experience in the aviation industry, Mike began his career as an aircraft maintenance and engineering officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force. For the last 12 years, Mike was vice president and general manager for StandardAero and Dassault Aircraft Services in the United States and abroad, making him ideally suited to take the helm in Tucson.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mike to the Bombardier family – his appointment is a testament to his deep knowledge of the aviation industry and his solid leadership skills,” says Gallagher. “Mike’s strong background in business aircraft support will be an asset to the team as he works to maintain overall customer satisfaction in Tucson and ensure this key service center continues to be a top choice for our customers.”
The Tucson and Fort Lauderdale Service Centers are among nine service facilities in the Bombardier Aviation support network where technicians deliver a range of aircraft maintenance services, modifications, inspections, refurbishment, fly-in repairs and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) service on Bombardier’s leading families of Learjet, Challenger and Global business jets.
