American Eurocopter, the leading U.S. provider of commercial helicopters, has named Fernando Lombo as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. His first day with the company was September 3.
“We are extremely pleased to have Fernando join the American Eurocopter team,” said American Eurocopter President and Chief Executive Marc Paganini. “Fernando’s experience with Airbus and EADS make him a valuable addition to our executive team.”
Since 2008, Lombo was with Airbus Military, responsible for all financial planning, reporting accounting and financial systems for the Airbus Military and Airbus Spain programs, including the transition and integration of the EADS Military Transport Aircraft Division into the Airbus organization. Prior to that, he held a series of increasingly responsible senior executive finance positions within Airbus Military and various divisions of EADS.
In his new position, Lombo will assume a strategic role in the overall management of American Eurocopter. He will have primary day-to-day responsibility for planning, implementing, managing and controlling all financial-related activities of the company, including oversight of all contracts with both commercial and military customers. He will report to Paganini.
