Ben Bridge (44) has been appointed Executive Vice President Global Business while Matthieu Louvot (41) becomes Executive Vice President Customer Support & Services, in a move aimed at consolidating Airbus Helicopters’ leading position while remaining as close as possible to its customers. Both Global Business and Support & Services functions are now sitting at the company’s Executive Committee. These appointments are effective 1 April 2016.

“This updated approach will allow us to put an even stronger emphasis on Support & Services, a key element of our strategy to go from the biggest to the best in the rotorcraft industry”, said Guillaume Faury. "I want to thank Dominique Maudet for the great work he achieved by ensuring the commercial success of Airbus Helicopters and supporting our customers in a challenging market environment".

Dominique Maudet (59), who had held the position Executive Vice-President Global Business & Services since May 2011, is appointed as Head of Airbus Group Strategic Defence Relations, also effective 1 April 2016. In this position he will report to Marwan Lahoud, Executive Vice-President International, Strategy & Public Affairs and Member of the Group Executive Committee.
