Turbomeca Promotes, Appoints
Turbomeca, one of the leading helicopter engine manufacturers worldwide, recently announced its new "Progress Initiative" division, which is tasked with "deploying, coordinating and steering all the processes directed at progress" within the company and its affiliates from the word go. One of the most visible changes presented by the company's new initiative is the promotion of Max Tuliť, formerly vice president of quality, to the new slot of vice president of progress initiative. Additionally, Philippe Larrauri was named to succeed Tuliť. Tuliť, a graduate from French engineering schools INSA & IAE, began his career in 1975 with Turbomeca (Bordes). In 1981, he was appointed manager of the manufacturing activity at the Tarnos site and, in 1988, became head of the production department. Among other positions, since July 2002 he has held the post of vice president of quality. Larrauri has spent most of his career in the quality function, at the Messier Foundry from 1990 to 1997, then with Schlumberger until 2002, and finally in the Valeo Group. Turbomeca has produced some 50,000 turbine helicopter engines, sold to more than 2000 customers worldwide.
