Space, are served by fully integrated support teams in key functions such as finance, human

resources, legal, ethics and compliance, strategy & international and communications.

Airbus’ executive management team is integrated under Chief Executive Officer Tom Enders.

and Helicopters respectively. Harald Wilhelm remains Chief Financial Officer, Thierry Baril

Chief Human Resources Officer and John Harrison continues as General Counsel.

Airbus now has one single corporate headquarters in Toulouse, home to the Company’s
