Airbus Helicopters CEO Guillaume Faury will succeed Fabrice Brégier as the president of Airbus commercial aircraft as part of a management shakeup within the group. Brégier will be stepping down as the president and COO in February 2018.

Faury’s successor will be decided and announced in the coming weeks, said group CEO Tom Enders, who will not be seeking re-election when his term expires in 2019.

Enders said: “Guillaume represents our next generation of leaders and has demonstrated broad business and industry experience, an international mindset and a clear focus on delivering value during his tenure at the helm of our helicopter business. I look forward to working with him in his new role. Guillaume’s succession at Airbus Helicopters will be decided and announced in the coming weeks.”

This appointment is part of a series of executive changes following Enders’ announcement that he will not not serve another term as group CEO after his mandate runs out in April 2019.

Brégier has indicated that he does not wish to be part of the group CEO selection process.
