Plane maker taps Guillaume Faury to lead firm amid delivery challenges

Airbus SE tapped the head of its plane-making unit and effective No. 2, Guillaume Faury, as its next chief executive, the centerpiece of a generational leadership overhaul at the European aerospace giant.

Mr. Faury is set to succeed Tom Enders in April, pending shareholder approval, Airbus said Monday. Mr. Enders, 59 years old, said late last year that he wouldn’t seek a new mandate when his current term expires at the company’s annual shareholder meeting in April.
