By Wings Staff
Antonio Carlos Garcia has been elected as Embraer’s new chief financial officer and investor relations officer, replacing Nelson Salgado, who will serve as the company’s chief operations officer. The change will be effective as of January 1, 2020.
Embraer explains Garcia has extensive experience in finance, accounting and procurement at multinational companies. He worked for nine years at ThyssenKrupp, where he served as the global CFO of that company’s Forged Technologies business unit, in Germany. Previously, he worked for six years at the ZF Group, in Brazil, and over 18 years at Siemens, in various business segments. Garcia earned a Bachelor’s degree in accounting and a Master’s degree in business administration.
Nelson Salgado, who has worked at Embraer for more than 30 years, will lead Embraer’s operations as chief operations officer. With a Bachelor’s degree, Master’s and PhD in engineering, as well as an MBA, Salgado began his career as an engineer and has held several executive positions within the company since then.
Since it was founded in 1969, Embraer has delivered more than 8,000 aircraft.
