Diamond Aircraft CEO, Christian Dries, has announced he is stepping down from his position, and has named Gerd Berchtold as his successor.

“Dr Berchtold is a highly experienced and respected aeronautical engineer,” Dries told the Financial Times Deutschland. “I need a CEO who takes care 100 per cent of the aircraft. Dr Berchtold brings not only a wealth of aviation experience and expertise to our organisation, but also a passion for general aviation. With his 100 per cent focus on operations and customer support, our customers will be better served, now and in the future.”

Dries will retain ownership of the Austria based company, and says the company’s marketing, distribution and aircraft finance arms will still report to him.
