work alongside and together with outstanding leadership teams and I thank
Tom Enders and the Board for entrusting and supporting me during all those
years," said Marwan Lahoud. "Looking back, the teams and the many
remarkable individuals that I had the honour to lead or work with inside
and outside of our company will always remain my finest and strongest
memory. Naturally, I take pride seeing the fruit of our work and what we
have achieved. It ranges from my contribution to the creation of this great
company on the eve of the 21st century to revolutionising our corporate
structure in 2013, the change of strategy and its implementation through
the large number of significant M&A projects we completed. With the
creation of one single Airbus, we finally accomplished the ultimate merger.
Now, it"s time for me to move on and I am now looking forward to embracing
new challenges."

corporate structure over the last five years. I wish him much success in
the future."
