Covestro CFO Thomas Toepfer will join the Airbus Executive Board on September 1.
At Covestro, a plastics company, the search for a successor has already begun. He will succeed Dominik Asam there, who will leave his post on March 3rd. Between Asam's departure and Toepfer's arrival, Xavier Tardy, who is responsible for finance at Airbus Defense and Space, will assume the CFO position at group level on an interim basis. Airbus CFO Asam initiated his move to SAP last summer. At the software group from Walldorf, he will also be in charge of the finance department at the beginning of March. He only took up his post as chief financial officer at Airbus in April 2019.
