Bombardier Transportation has decided to put Bombardier Spain’s management team in charge of the railway projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East. Óscar Vazquez, president in Spain and Portugal, leads this team. With this decision, the Canadian company emphasizes its confidence in the team of Bombardier Spain.

The management team of Bombardier Spain has extensive international experience with its president, Óscar Vázquez, at the head, who over the last years has held positions of responsibility in Spain, England, Austria, Singapore and Switzerland. His extensive knowledge of the different areas of the business will be key to the development of the Spanish, African and Middle East railway market.
