Typically, changes at the top occur suddenly when business is down and it’s believed that new blood is needed to bring it back up. However, that is not the case at Gulfstream, where on April 9 Joseph Lombardo is scheduled to replace Bryan Moss as president of the company and executive v-p of parent General Dynamics’ (GD) aerospace business group.
Under Moss’s three-year leadership, Gulfstream has steadily increased sales and deliveries.
Lombardo, 58, has been Gulfstream’s COO since 2001. Moss, 66, who
has been Gulfstream president since 2003, will become president emeritus of Gulfstream, a new position.
“We look forward to continuing to enjoy the benefit of Bryan’s leadership in his new position,” said GD chairman and CEO Nicholas Chabraja. “He will focus his efforts on domestic and international customer relations and assist in the company’s strategic planning and business-development activities.”
