Airbus Helicopters is implementing a new executive committee on Sept. 1, 2019, with the goal of simplifying and strengthening cross-function collaboration within the company.
“The simplification of our organisation aims at being leaner, improving our efficiency and developing collaboration within the company. To achieve this, we have regrouped certain functions into single organisations such as programs, quality and aviation safety, and operations. Bringing strategy as well as the DTO and company transformation functions to the executive committee is essential in preparing the future of our business,” said Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters. “I am confident that this new team will continue to boost our performance and bring value to our customers.”
The changes to be made to the Airbus Helicopters executive committee are:
Alain Flourens, currently executive vice president of industry, will be nominated executive vice president of operations, covering industry and procurement.
Wolfgang Schoder, currently executive vice president of light helicopters and governmental programs, will be nominated executive vice president of strategy and remain general manager of Airbus Helicopters Germany and the representative for German authorities.
Matthieu Louvot, currently executive vice president of customer support and services, will be nominated executive vice president Airbus Helicopters Programs, taking over the light helicopters and governmental programs from Wolfgang Schoder as of Sept. 1, 2019. He will then lead the new unified Airbus Helicopters Programs organization as of Jan. 1, 2020.
Christoph Zammert, currently head of program support, will become executive vice president of customer support and services and become a member of the Airbus Helicopters executive committee.
Mathilde Royer, currently head of global set-up optimization project, will be nominated as digital transformation officer and head of company transformation and become a member of the Airbus Helicopters executive committee.
Bernhard Weigl, currently head of aviation safety and quality, will become a member of the Airbus Helicopters executive committee.
