Rockwell Collins strengthens Middle East team

ABU DHABI, February 19, 2017

Rockwell Collins, a pioneer in the development of innovative aviation and high-integrity solutions, has announced plans to increase its local presence in the Middle East region and appointed new leadership.

Although the company has a 20-year presence in the Middle East, it is expanding operations as part of its commitment to help strengthen the industrial capabilities of the regional defence and aerospace industry in this strategic market, a statement said.

Talel Kamel has been appointed as managing director and Bernard Bouillaud named sales director for the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa.

The company also has plans to double its regional business development team during 2017.

Through its solid foundation in the Middle East, Rockwell Collins plans to accelerate its growth through partnerships and collaboration with regional entities, it said.

“During 2017, we plan to double the business development team working out of our regional headquarters in Dubai and our offices in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins.

Kamel will be responsible for leading and developing the company’s commercial and government systems business interests in the region.

Kamel joined Rockwell Collins in 2013 as a government systems principal sales account manager for the company’s International and Service Solutions (I&SS) business. Over the years, he has contributed to the company’s growing presence in North Africa, it said.

Before joining Rockwell Collins, Kamel held positions at Airbus and at Strata in the UAE where he has resided since 2007.

Bouillaud will lead a new team of people dedicated to the defence market and based in the Middle East. Bouillaud joined Rockwell Collins in 1998 where he has held several positions in program management and business development. Most recently, he served as strategy director for the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa, based in Dubai.

“We’re fulfilling our strategy to strengthen and build new relationships in this region by putting the right resources where our customers need them,” Alber added. “We remain committed to better serving our customers and our partners by increasing our investment and growing our local presence.” – TradeArabia News Service
