Airbus appoints new Communications leadership team

In order to support its newly-created Communications & Corporate Affairs function, which will go live on January 1, 2020, Airbus has appointed a new Communications leadership team which will work together to bring the next chapter of the company to life, while ensuring business proximity, reinforcing audience centricity and growing digital, editorial and visual content capabilities.

Maggie Bergsma, currently head of Communications for ATR, is appointed Head of Communications Commercial Aircraft. In the new Communications leadership team, she will join Yves Barillé, Head of Communications Helicopters, and Dirk Erat, Head of Communications Defence & Space.

He will work closely with Bergsma, Barillé and Erat to ensure proximity and coordination with the company’s three main businesses.

Meanwhile, Guillaume Steuer is appointed Head of External Communications, reporting to Philipp Encz and managing Airbus’ media relations, web and social media activities.
