Thierry Betbeze new Dassault Falcon Jet CEO
Thierry Betbeze has been appointed CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet (DFJ), a wholly owned Dassault Aviation subsidiary. He was previously senior vice-president of Finance at DFJ, which is responsible for Falcon business aircraft marketing, sales and support in the Americas.
Betbeze replaces Jean Rosanvallon, who is stepping down after leading DFJ for 23 years. Rosanvallon, a 44-year Dassault veteran, will serve as special senior advisor to Dassault Aviation chairman and CEO Eric Trappier during a transition period.
“Thierry’s appointment is the latest in a number of recent changes intended to reinforce our worldwide sales, marketing and customer support effort,” said Trappier.
Betbeze began his career at Dassault Aviation in 1984 as a cost accountant and switched to export financing with a wide range of responsibilities including treasury and currency hedging, before being promoted to senior vice-president Finance in 2004.
