Airbus CEO Appointed Chairman

On December 17, 2012, the Airbus Corporate Foundation appointed Fabrice Brégier, Airbus’ President and CEO, as its new Chairman of the Board of Directors.  He succeeds Tom Enders, CEO of EADS, who headed the foundation since its creation in 2008.  Mr Enders is now Honorary Chairman of the Foundation.
Mr Brégier said that he was thrilled, adding:  “I will continue to work hand-in-hand with our Airbus employees as well as with our partner airlines and organisations in order to take the Foundation further.  With a strong footing on the Foundation’s humanitarian and environmental objectives, the organisation will now focus on more local initiatives in Airbus home countries, especially ones that help young people from difficult areas.”
The Airbus Corporate Foundation aims to facilitate charitable activities worldwide within an international network of employees and partners by focusing its support on three themes:  humanitarian and community support; youth development; and the environment.
