Airbus SE has announced the appointment of Christian Scherer as the CEO of the Commercial Aircraft business. He will report to Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury.
This new Commercial Aircraft business set-up will be established in the next months in collaboration with the Company’s social partners. It is expected to go live in project mode from January 1, 2024 onwards.
Since 2019, Airbus merged the leadership roles of Airbus as a whole and its Commercial Aircraft business. This strategic decision was aimed at achieving better alignment and faster decision-making, especially during times marked by various crises and significant industry changes.
“Empowering Christian in the Commercial Aircraft CEO role will enable us to reinforce focus on the success of our Commercial Aircraft business while allowing me to dedicate my time to steering Airbus in a complex and fast-evolving global environment,” said Guillaume Faury, Airbus CEO.
“I’ll put my passion and that of team Airbus at the service of our customers to meet our operational objectives as we work to consolidate our success, continuously improve, and prepare the future of our products and services. As we do so, we will work closely with our partners and suppliers worldwide on our common roadmap to decarbonise aviation,” said Christian Scherer.
