London (CNN Business)Airbus has named French engineer Guillaume Faury as its next CEO. Managing the potential fallout from Brexit will be his first challenge, but there are plenty of others too.
Faury will replace Tom Enders on April 10, 2019, the European airplane maker said Monday. His appointment answers one key question raised by a leadership shuffle announced late last year.
Before taking charge of Airbus’ Commercial Aircraft division in February 2018, Faury led the company’s helicopter business. He also did turns as a senior manager at Peugeot and Eurocopter.
