CEO of Airbus to step down

Posted 15 December 2017 · Add Comment

Airbus has announced that its CEO Tom Enders will be leaving the company in April 2019, reports aerotime.

Enders was quoted saying that Airbus needs more “fresh minds for the 2020s”.

He has been part of the company for the last 14 years.

Enders will not be the only one leaving the company. Fabrice Bregier, the company’s COO and President of the Commercial Aircraft Division, will step down even earlier – in February 2018. Bregier already has a successor – Guillaume Faury, the incumbent CEO of Airbus Helicopters. The CTO of Airbus Paul Eremenko is also leaving the company after just two years of service to join United Technologies Corporation (UTC) as Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, effective January 1, 2018. In addition, John Leahy, the legendary salesman responsible for 90% of all Airbus sold, is retiring in January.
