He did not have to move far from a physical point of view.
ATR chief executive Christian Scherer moved just across the road last week to Airbus as chief commercial officer after Eric Schulz resigned less than ten months into the job.
Schulz, who joined Airbus in January, stepped down “for personal reasons.”
Schulz took over as sales supremo from Airbus veteran John Leahy who announced his retirement late last year. Airbus CEO Tom Enders said the company regretted the former Rolls-Royce executive’s decision and wished him “all the best for his future.”
Christian Scherer joined ATR in 2016, after a 32-year career at Airbus. ATR is 50% owned by Italian company Leonardo, and 50% by Airbus.
“With Christian Scherer we see one of our most customer-focused leaders at the commercial helm of Airbus. Over his various assignments I greatly valued his international mind-set, his strategic vision, and tremendous commercial expertise,” CEO Enders said.
Born in Germany and raised in France, Scherer has an MBA from the University of Ottawa in international marketing and is a graduate of the Paris Business School.
