Eric Chen Becomes Airbus China President

Rafael Gonzalez-Ripoll Named COO

On January 1st, 2013, Eric Chen assumed his new role as President of Airbus China, responsible for Airbus’ overall activities in the People’s Republic of China, including business development, commercial activities, customer services and industrial cooperation. Eric Chen, previously Airbus China Senior Vice President Commercial and External Affairs, succeeds Laurence Barron, who has now taken over as CEO and Chairman of EADS China. In addition  Rafael Gonzalez-Ripoll-Garzon has been appointed Airbus China Chief Operating Officer (COO). Previously, Rafael Gonzalez-Ripoll was Head of the Center of Excellence (CoE) Empennage /Aft Fuselage of Airbus in Spain.

Eric Chen (pictured) joined Airbus in 1994 as Area Sales Director. He was promoted Vice President Sales of Airbus China in 2001. He held that position until 2008 when he became Senior Vice President Commercial and External Affairs. As one of the pioneers who worked for Airbus China, Chen has witnessed the successful development of Airbus’ business, especially the expansion of its in-service fleet from 6 per cent in 1994 to about 50 per cent today for aircraft over 100 seats.
 
“I feel much more the challenge than the honour in the job of President of Airbus China,” said Chen. “China is one of the fastest growing aviation markets in the world. My predecessor Laurence Barron and the entire Airbus China team have laid a solid foundation for the further development of Airbus in China and I will continue to lead Airbus’ development in China to new highs."

Before joining Airbus, Eric Chen had worked for companies in Shanghai and Paris. Chen graduated from University of Nanjing in 1982 and studied in several institutions in France.
 
Born in Shanghai, Eric Chen is married with two children. His hobbies include philosophy, history and Peking Opera.
