AMSTERDAM, April 12 (Reuters) - Airbus Chief Executive Tom Enders is in the early stages of considering whether to seek another term as head of Europe’s largest aerospace company when his mandate expires in 2019, and says he is not currently thinking about retirement.
The German-born executive told Reuters in an interview he was far from bored after five years in the job, during which the company has gone through sweeping governance changes as well as a reorganisation whose final step was approved on Wednesday.
“It is up to shareholders and the board to decide. I am 58 now and I am not close to retirement. (Former CEO) Louis (Gallois) retired from the company aged 68, which is not my benchmark, but in 2019 I will only be 60,” he said. (Reporting by Tim Hepher; Editing by Adrian Croft)
