Ralph Acs, who led the Learjet 85 program in his role as vice president and general manager of Bombardier Learjet, left the company last week as part of the Canadian airframer’s current corporate restructuring plan. A company spokeswoman confirmed that responsibility for its Wichita site as well as for the Learjet 70/75 programs had transferred in March to David Murray, who was previously the company’s vice president of operations for the Global 5000/6000 programs in Montreal.
In July, Acs was reassigned to Montreal as vice president of program management and supply readiness for the Global 7000/8000, while Jean Seguin, who was named as president of Bombardier’s newly designated aerostructures and engineering services segment, was tasked with leading the delayed Learjet 85 program in an interim capacity.
Designated as superfluous last week by Bombardier was the position of vice president and general manager for the Challenger programs, with the manufacturer releasing Stephane Leblanc. The company told AIN that his position will not be replaced as Eric Filion remains as vice president of operations for the Challenger programs.
