Eve Air Mobility announced that Antonio João Carmesini Barcellos, current chairman of the board and general director of Embraer Portugal, will be the company’s new vice president of industrialization.

With more than 27 years of experience in the aviation industry, Carmesini spent almost eight years as the director of manufacturing engineering at Embraer. The executive stood out for his strategic leadership, overseeing production operations and driving innovation to increase efficiency and product quality.

“Carmesini brings a combination of deep technical expertise and strategic vision that will be invaluable to our mission to transform urban air mobility,” said Johann Bordais, CEO of Eve. “We look forward to following his leadership as we accelerate our industrialization journey.”

“I am proud to have contributed to Embraer in various positions over the years, and I am excited to bring that experience to Eve,” said Carmesini. “With a focus on industrialization, my goal is to enhance the company’s ecosystem of innovative solutions, ensuring efficient and high-quality production processes that will contribute to Eve’s sustainable growth.”

In July 2023, Eve revealed that its first eVTOL production facility will be located in the city of Taubaté, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

The company has begun assembly of its first full-scale eVTOL prototype, which will be followed by a test campaign in 2024. Eve’s eVTOL is scheduled to start deliveries and enter into service in 2026. 

This press release was prepared and distributed by Eve.
