Rudiger Fuchs left AirbusNew appointments at Airbus - Rüdiger Fuchs is leaving the company
Mario Heinen has been appointed Executive Vice President, Head of the trans-national Centre of Excellence (COE) Fuselage and Cabin with immediate effect.
According to Airbus, this follows the departure of Rüdiger Fuchs who wishes to pursue other opportunities outside of Airbus.
With his wide ranging industrial experience, especially in successfully managing the A380 programme in the course of the past two years, and previously the Airbus Delivery Centre and the A320 Family programme, Mr Heinen has all the right competences and expertise to successfully lead this very important COE, which not only encompasses all Airbus civil aircraft programmes, but also the A400M and MRTTs. Furthermore, his intimate knowledge of the A380 will be a great asset to secure full industrialisation of this programme.
The new Head of the A380 programme is Alain Flourens who was Executive Vice President in charge of the A320 Family Programme since September 2006. Daniel Baubil (52) replaces Alain Flourens as Executive Vice President, Head of the A320 Family Programme.
