Appoints Pierre de Bausset as President
Airbus Group has consolidated its Divisions in India under Airbus Group India Private Limited. Taking responsibility of the new company as President is Pierre de Bausset, a 25-year veteran of Airbus Group and its former Corporate Secretary. India is the first international market where local operations have been brought under a single company as part of the Group’s ‘one roof’ policy.
“Given India’s importance for us, we have implemented a new organizational structure there with Pierre in charge. There will be more internal coordination, pooling of resources and basically a far more efficient engagement with our local stakeholders. Formation of a single company will also greatly support our ‘Make in India’ plans and allow us to take a leap in our relationship with the country. Pierre is perfectly positioned for this role due to his wealth of experience, network amongst key decision makers within the Group and an in-depth understanding of our businesses,” said Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders. “Pierre takes over from Yves Guillaume who has spent 9 years in India and did a great job in establishing Airbus Group’s local footprint. He has been a tremendous asset and achieved several important milestones during his tenure for which I thank him.”
