"Chris is a talented young executive who has had a big impact on Airbus Group from its inception and in every subsequent post," said Allan McArtor, Chairman and CEO of Airbus Group Inc. "He is inheriting the leadership of a strong company that has been the leader in the U.S. commercial helicopter market for more than decade. We are confident Chris will continue and enhance the growth of Airbus Helicopters in North America."
