Raymond Duquette, formerly CAE‘s vice president of global business development and sales, has been appointed president and general manager of CAE USA, a subsidiary of the Montreal-based aerospace technology manufacturer.
The retired U.S. Marine Corps colonel succeeds John Lenyo, who led CAE USA over the past 12 years as president and GM, the company said Wednesday.
Duquette, who joined the company in 2004 after working at Boeing (NYSE: BA), will be responsible for management and operation of Tampa, Fla-based CAE USA in his new role.
Gene Colabatistto, CAE group president of military products, training and services, said Duquette built relationships with customers and gained knowledge of the defense market during his time in the military and in the private sector.
Duquette retired from the military in 2008 after serving 29 years, including 10 as an active duty officer and fighter pilot and an additional 19 years in the Marine Corps Reserves.
