This follows the announcement last week by Airbus appointing Christian Scherer as its Chief Commercial Officer.

Stefano Bortoli has a deep knowledge and understanding of the company, the aviation industry and the regional market.  He held various top management positions and has a very international background, providing the right profile and experience to continue the positive developments at ATR. 

Stefano Bortoli commented: “I thank Christian for the crucial contributions he has made to ATR at commercial level as well as preparing the grounds for the future of ATR as a leader in the regional aviation. I am honored to join the passionate and professional team of ATR and bring in my experience to continue to ensure ATR’s leadership in the market and position it for the future.”
