Di Perna, who most recently was vice-president of global sourcing at GE Power, will report to Chief Executive Officer Alain Bellemare, Bombardier said.
The announcement comes at a time when Bombardier is in the middle of a five-year turnaround plan through 2020, after investments in its CSeries jetliner led to a cash crunch in 2015.
The company sold a majority stake in its money-losing C Series flagship commercial jet to Europe`s Airbus
In his new role, starting on Sept. 15, Di Perna will be leading the Canadian company`s aerospace engineering business and monitoring its aerostructures and engineering services business.
