Alan Klapmeier Remains Chairman Of Board
ANN REALTIME REPORTING 12.18.08 1300 EST: There
will soon be a new man at the CEO desk of Cirrus Design... and it
isn't a Klapmeier. Current President and Chief Operating Officer
Brent Wouters will take over as CEO of the Duluth, MN-based
planemaker early next year, the company announced Thursday.
Wouters (above) will succeed company founder Alan Klapmeier,
effective February 1. Alan will continue to serve as chairman of
Cirrus' board of directors, while Cirrus co-founder Dale Klapmeier
will retain his role as vice-chair of the board.
"This is a very good opportunity for me, but I can’t say
enough about the foundation that Alan and Dale have built for this
company," Wouters told the Duluth News Tribune.
Wouters came onboard Cirrus in 2002 as Chief Financial Officer,
leaving a similar role at private equity firm International Payment
Services. He started out in the aviation industry as an aircraft
simulator engineer at Delta Air Lines.
