Change of Management at Kopter

29 September 2020 – Leonardo announces that Marco Viola, currently in charge to lead Kopter integration, will look after the overall governance of activities at Kopter on behalf of Leonardo Helicopters.

This step is taken as an interim solution as Kopter’s CEO Andreas Lowenstein has decided to step down from his current role and to pursue further opportunities outside Leonardo.  His successor has yet to be announced.

In order to guarantee a swift and seamless transition, Leonardo will ensure the continuity of all activities and operations as well as of the integration progress, being Kopter a key part of Leonardo’s future success in the helicopter sector.

The Company wishes Andreas Lowenstein best luck for his future endeavours.
