Diana Siegel Chief Financial Officer Electra.aero
Diana Siegel is the Chief Financial Officer for Electra.Aero, a developer of a hybrid-electric, ultra-short takeoff and landing aircraft able to take off and land independent of traditional airports within soccer field-sized spaces, such as barges or converted parking lots.
Prior to joining Electra, Diana led the commercial programs team at Aurora Flight Sciences where she developed Aurora’s advanced air mobility programs portfolio from its beginnings to a 150+ person team, which included the build and flight test of a full-scale eVTOL demonstrator for parent company, Boeing. Learnings from eVTOL technology convinced Diana of the need to find a more energy efficient and cost-effective way to move people than vertical lift aircraft could, to truly impact how many of us travel today. Electra’s blown-lift eSTOL provides that opportunity. She co-led Electra’s initial customer outreach, that to date has yielded a pre-order book of 1000+ aircraft.
Prior to joining the advanced air mobility industry, Diana was a management consultant with BCG, and worked in product development and systems engineering roles for Airbus Group’s MBDA, Lufthansa-Technik, and avionics developer, Avidyne.
She holds a Masters in Aero/Astro from MIT’s and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from the University of Queensland.
