Olivier Jarrault, most recently a board member at Cadence Aerospace and former president and CEO of Albany International, has been tapped to succeed Julian Guerra as CEO of the Anaheim, California-based aerospace and defense company.
Cadence also announced Monday the appointment of Brian Bentley as chief executive of the company’s aerostructures business, where he will drive profitability and identify new growth opportunities.
At Albany, Jarrault oversaw the company as it delivered material-engineered components of aerospace systems.
The more than 35-year aerospace and defense market veteran also led five businesses producing defense, aerospace and other industrial goods during his time as group president at Alcoa Engineered Products and Solutions.
Meanwhile, Bentley’s career includes general manager work at Premier Processing and Perfekta.
Guerra will remain at Cadence as a board of directors member and Kevin Martin will retain his position as CEO of the company’s engine business.
