Dassault Aviation names Carlos Brana EVP of civil aircraft

Dassault Aviation has appointed Carlos Brana as executive vice president for civil aircraft. He succeeds Olivier Villa, who retired on 1 July. “Carlos’ leadership and vision will be essential to maintaining the competitiveness of our Falcon operation and continuing the modernisation of our product line,” said Dassault Aviation’s chairman and CEO, Eric Trappier. “His two decades of experience in sales and product support will be vital to our continuing effort to deliver top-quality service to Falcon operators and maximise the customer ownership experience.”

Since 2016 Brana served as Villa’s deputy as senior vice president for civil aircraft with a special focus on worldwide Falcon business jet sales and marketing. In his new role, he will be responsible for defining and implementing global sales, marketing, customer service and product development strategy enabling the company to address the dynamic business aviation market environment.

Brana has been with Dassault’s business jet operation since 2005. He began as director of sales for Asia at Dassault Falcon Jet (DFJ), the company’s wholly owned subsidiary headquartered in Teterboro, New Jersey. He was later named vice president for contracts and specifications, and subsequently senior vice president for DFJ operations, with responsibility for customer service, finance and contract management. He also oversaw activities at the Dassault Aircraft Services (DAS) affiliate, which manages company-owned service centres in the Americas.
