Canadian transport manufacturer Bombardier (BBD) has appointed Annie Torkia Lagacé as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary.  

Annie’s new role follows an Executive Vice Presidency at Stornoway Diamonds, with a focus on corporate and commercial law. Before joining Stornoway, Annie acted as Senior Legal Counsel for the Eastern Canadian Iron Ore division of Cliffs Natural Resources.

Commenting on Annie’s appointment, Bombardier CEO Éric Martel said the company was thrilled to welcome Annie to the leadership team.

“She is a proven leader with extensive experience in corporate governance, compliance, securities law, and supporting complex financial and strategic transactions. Annie’s deep legal expertise and business acumen make her an excellent addition to our company,” he added.

Éric went on to say that Annie’s experience, energy and judgment will serve the company well as it completes its strategic repositioning and begins its new focus on becoming a business aviation franchise leader.

Annie will be replacing role’s previous occupant, Steeve Robitaille, who will remain with Bombardier while the sale of its transportation arm to Alstom finalises. In the meantime, Steeve will be able to ensure a “smooth” transition of responsibilities to Annie.

While congratulating Annie on her new appointment, Éric also took the time to recognise Steeve for his many contributions to Bombardier, including the critical role he played in the company’s recent strategic repositioning.

“Steeve spearheaded the successful negotiations leading to the sale of Bombardier Transportation to Alstom, the Aerostructures business sale to Spirit AeroSystems and the regional aircraft business sale to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Notably, all of this was accomplished during one of the most challenging periods for the transportation industry,” Eric added.

It was noted that was Steeve had chosen to leave the company to purse new challenges outside of Bombardier.

Bombardier remains unchanged and is trading at C$0.50 per share at 2:14pm EST.
