Personally, I'm always leery of people who claim to work 16-hour days
Actually, Streiff does do 16 hrs a day, he's quite the workaholic by all accounts and will chop and cut at Airbus where necessary to get the job done!
As for his previous work and not having any aviation experience, well personally I think this is an asset for the man, he won't be pre-judging anything as he has no experience in this area so will look at all aspects of the Airbus business from a purely business attitude! Drawing on the experience of people whom he trusts and is confident in their ability in the aviation business!
He'll do Airbus the world of good, so long as he doesn't get drawn in to the politics and remains the hard businessman he's got the reputation of!
