Stéphane Chery has been appointed as Airbus Helicopters’ Head of Digital Strategy, reporting to Clive Schley, Head of Strategy and Marketing. He will be responsible for implementing the company’s vision and top objectives in this domain, enabling new culture and behaviors governing digital technologies across the company.
Airbus Helicopters’ creation of the Digital Strategy position underscores the significance of digitalization in all aspects of the company’s operations – from design, development and production to customer support and services – along with Airbus Group’s top priority on digital technologies in 2015.
“The evolution of digital capabilities is a key element of Airbus Helicopters’ global transformation plan, which is focused on better serving and satisfying our customers,” explained Airbus Helicopters’ President & CEO Guillaume Faury. “Embedded in the Strategy department, Stéphane will be capitalizing on and further fostering the digital initiatives we have already implemented.”
Chery joined Airbus Helicopters four years ago as the Head of External Communications, developing the company’s image and reputation – and supporting the branding of its new identity within Airbus Group. His career includes 15 years of experience in change management and corporate communications.
