Jim Ziegler, v-p and general manager of Bombardier business aviation services, and Keith Miller, v-p of engineering for Learjet in Wichita, have left Bombardier Aerospace. Ziegler’s decision to leave the company was based on personal reasons, and he plans to remain in the Wichita area. Miller had scheduled his retirement before Bombardier’s major restructuring began earlier this year and will relocate to Florida. The restructuring, said a spokesman, was designed “to bring our organization closer to our customers, to reduce bureaucracy and increase profitability. It was the right thing to do at the right time” (AIN, November 2003, page 2)
