Embraer Defense and Security President and CEO Jackson Schneider, is retiring in April 2023. Current Chief Commercial Officer of Embraer Defense & Security, Bosco da Costa Júnior, will take over from him.

“Jackson’s strategic vision, profound knowledge in global geopolitics, and strong leadership have played a key role in Embraer’s recent history,” said Francisco Gomes Neto, President and CEO of Embraer. “Over the last decade, his contributions have been fundamental in the company’s transformation journey. We are fortunate to have benefited from his talents and experience, and we appreciate everything he has done for the company.”

Jackson Schneider joined Embraer in 2011 and has led the Defense & Security unit since the beginning of 2014, being responsible for the development and internationalization of the KC-390 program, in addition to consolidating the company as the main “Brazilian Defense House,” with projects in the country’s three Armed Forces. Prior to that role, he served as Vice President of People, Sustainability and Communication of the company.
