The Montreal-based company (TSX:BBD.B) says its aerospace division will operate in three segments — business aircraft, commercial aircraft and aerostructures and engineering services — each headed by an executive. The railway segment based in Germany remains intact.
Hachey, 59, took over the aerospace division in 2008 following a 30-year career in the automotive industry with General Motors and Delphi Automotive Systems.
He’s leaving the company as its new CSeries commercial aircraft remains grounded following an engine incident at the end of May. The aircraft has undergone several delays and is now expected to be delivered in the second half of next year.
In a release issued Wednesday after markets closed, Bombardier said Hachey was retiring “as a result of this reorganization.”
