Airbus Group Chief Technical Officer Jean Botti to Leave in April

Airbus Group Chief Technical Officer Jean Botti, 58, will leave the company in April to pursue a new career opportunity outside of the aerospace industry. Airbus Group Chief Executive Officer Tom Enders has accepted his resignation.

“Jean Botti aspires to add another chapter to his long and distinguished career. After a successful decade at the helm of our Corporate Technical Office and in the Group’s top management, I have accepted his personal wish to leave – even if I regret his decision,” said Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders. “Jean has been and is a great innovator, change manager and a true technological visionary. He will demonstrate these unique abilities also with his future employer. Clearly, Jean has made his entry into the history books of aviation as the ‘father of electric flight’.”

Jean Botti joined the Group in May 2006 from Delphi Corporation in Troy, Michigan. Since then, he has pushed Airbus Group forward on the path of innovation in various areas and through many initiatives.
