Sener sets up specialist defence arm under new director general

04 February 2020

Spanish engineering group Sener Aeroespacial has appointed its first director general in charge of defence projects, part of a company reorganisation aimed at expanding its presence in the sector.

Rafael Orbe joined the company from Revenga Smart Solutions, where he held a similar post in charge of telecoms, security, and defence. He is also a member of the directors’ think tank, Know Square.

A company spokesperson told Jane’s on 4 February that the reorganisation was a follow-up to the takeover of Tryo Aerospace & Electronics from investment company Alantra in June 2018.

This had expanded Sener’s own aerospace division to the point where it had been decided to separate defence as a stand-alone commercial area.
