Dassault Falcon Jet recently promoted Rodrigo Pesoa to the position of Vice President of Sales for Latin America.
In his new role, Pesoa will direct the regional team responsible for overseeing the development of new business in South America, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, where more than 100 Falcons are in operation. Pesoa, who has been with Dassault Falcon Jet for 17 years, was previously Sales Director for South America.
“Rodrigo is well respected for his deep and intimate knowledge of the Falcon line and the business jet marketplace and is an exemplary ambassador of our brand in Latin America,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet. “His leadership will be vital to our objective of maintaining a strong market position in the region.”
Dassault is the market leader throughout Latin America, especially in Brazil, where the first Falcon was introduced nearly 40 years ago. Falcons are the country’s most widely used large cabin business model with nearly 40 aircraft currently in service. The Falcon 8X recently received Brazilian certification and the first delivery to a local customer is expected in the coming months.
Pesoa joined Dassault Falcon Jet in 1999 as part of the Brazilian sales team and was named Sales Director for South America in 2004. He holds a degree in law from Universidade Paulista in São Paulo, Brazil.
