OGMA, the Portuguese maintenance provider and aerostructures manufacturer, has appointed Marco Tulio Pellegrini as its new CEO.
Pellegrini takes the helm at OGMA after moving across from Embraer, which holds a 65% share of the joint venture with government-backed holding company EMPORDEF.
At the Brazilian aircraft OEM, he was CEO and president of its executive jets business division.
He succeeds Rodrigo Almeida Rosa, who will become chief financial officer of Embraer Europe. The change will become effective as of Apr. 3, 2017.
“Embraer and OGMA have strengthened the levels of industrial cooperation to leverage capabilities in designing, manufacturing and services for the global market, Pellegrini said in a statement. “It is an honor to take the helm of this almost centenary company to lead new businesses and growth opportunities of this important Portuguese Company.”
OGMA, based in Alverca, holds a number of commercial MRO capabilities across aircraft overhaul, engines, components and engineering support services.
