Posted on February 7, 2019

Effective immediately, Danny Di Perna is appointed President, Bombardier Transportation. Di Perna will replace Laurent Troger who has informed the company of his intention to resign and pursue opportunities outside the company. Di Perna, who joined Bombardier in 2018 and most recently led Bombardier’s Aerostructures and Engineering Services (BAES) segment, brings more than 30 years of industrial experience to this new role.

“Danny is an exceptional and engaging leader with a proven record of leading complex industrial organizations,” said Alain Bellemare, president/CEO, Bombardier Inc. “His demonstrated success driving operational efficiency, improving quality and delighting customers make him the right person to follow Laurent and accelerate Bombardier Transportation’s transformation.”

“I’d like to thank Laurent for his many contributions to Bombardier over the past 15 years, including his exceptional leadership while serving as President of our rail segment for the past 3 years,” continued Bellemare. “During this time, Transportation significantly grew its backlog, optimized its footprint and executed an aggressive production ramp-up. As a result of Laurent’s leadership, Bombardier Transportation is a stronger, more efficient company poised for solid growth.”
