Wendy McMillan will also take over as managing director for the region. She will replace Paul Brown, who has held the position on an interim basis since August 2018. He will return to his position of Project Director for the Queensland New Generation Rollingstock project.

With Australia and South East Asia together as one strong sub-region, combined with Wendy’s strategic leadership, our objectives are to increase customer satisfaction, drive business growth and deliver our transformation program.”

Per Allmer further said:

“I sincerely thank Paul Brown for his leadership in Australia in the interim and for his ongoing contribution to Bombardier. I also take this opportunity to thank Jayaram Naidu, Head of South East Asia, as he has been instrumental in the strong growth of our South East Asian region winning significant orders during 2018. Our powerful new team of Wendy, Paul and Jayaram will leverage the synergies, strengths and successes of both teams to jointly shape the new operations model for Australia and South East Asia in preparation for the market evolution to come.”
