São Paulo, Brazil - February 9th, 2023 – With the objective of accelerating the company's growth and giving more focus to areas relevant to the business, Embraer announced today the creation of two new vice-presidencies: Global Procurement and Strategy, Digital and Innovation. The two areas now report directly to the company's president and CEO, Francisco Gomes Neto.
The Procurement area, which was previously integrated with the Vice-Presidency of Finance, IT, and Investor Relations, will be led by Roberto Chaves, Director of Procurement since 2020. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering and an International Executive MBA from FIA-USP, Roberto Chaves joined Embraer in 2001 and has held different senior positions in the Procurement area, including managing suppliers at the industrial plant in Harbin, China, and more recently leading the company's shared services center.
The Corporate Strategy directorate, which was part of the Vice-Presidency of Engineering, along with Innovation and Digital directorate, will now form the Vice-Presidency of Strategy, Digital, and Innovation, to be led by Dimas Tomelin, who has been Director of Strategy for the last three years. Working for 21 years at Embraer, Tomelin was previously Director of Market Intelligence for Defense & Security and has also served as manager of the KC-390 program and product development in executive aviation. He has a degree in Electrical Engineering, with a postgraduate degree in leadership from Fundação Dom Cabral.
“Within our strategic planning, the main sustainable growth drivers are business efficiency and innovation. Excellence in the procurement area plays a fundamental role in the pillar of efficiency and value creation. In the case of innovation, we are going to strengthen the integration of these projects into our long-term strategy, accelerating business growth,” said Francisco Gomes Neto. “With the changes, we also seek to recognize and value the company's internal talent, which has a high-performance team that is very prepared for the future.”
Upon the creation of the Strategy, Digital and Innovation Vice-Presidency, Daniel Moczydlower will be responsible for new projects and partnerships within the global innovation ecosystem, reporting to Dimas Tomelin.
The changes take effect today.
