Gustav Humbert Set To Become Airbus Head

Fri May 20, 2005 6:10 pm

Airbus second-in-command Gustav Humbert is likely to become the next head of the European airplane maker in an apparent resolution of a Franco-German succession row, French newspaper La Tribune said on Friday.

A 55 years old German Techy.

Humbert served as President, Commercial Aircraft for DaimlerChrysler Aerospace AG (Dasa) and was a Member of the Board of Management of Dasa, one of the three EADS founding companies.

Airbus declined to comment. EADS was not immediately available in France.
