Jane F. Garvey is stepping down from her position on
Bombardier’s board, effective Wednesday, to accept a position on U.S.
President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team.
“I would like to thank Jane Garvey for her sound advice and
guidance during her tenure,” said Laurent Beaudoin, chairman of the board for
Bombardier. “We wish her great success.”
Garvey’s departure from the board brings the total number of
directors to 12, of which seven are independent. Bombardier will begin
searching for her replacement.
