The European Business Aviation Association and it's recently appointed CEO Brandon Mitchener have agreed to "part ways", according to a statement issued by the EBAA on Tuesday (6th March).

Assuring its membership that the Association will maintain operational continuity while conducting the search for a new leader, the EBAA stressed that its robust organisational structure will ensure the successful realisation of key events and initiatives such as its Annual General Meeting and the launch of a bold communication strategy this March.

Additionally, preparations for the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in May, together with co-organiser the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), will continue uninterrupted.

Chairman of the Board of Governors Juergen Wiese will be actively supported by Board Members Marwan Khalek, Graham Williamson, Robert Smith and Maxime Bouchard in the leading and supervising of the Secretariat, reinforced by EBAA’s very capable Senior Management team, until a new leader of the Secretariat joins the Association.

Chairman Juergen Wiese said: “EBAA has built a strong foundation for future growth, with a range of exciting projects and opportunities ahead of us.

"On behalf of our Members, the Board, Secretariat and I will continue our strong advocacy of Business Aviation in Europe and will continue to move our Association forward as we have done for the past 41 years.”

Journalist and public affairs professional Mitchener, a French and US citizen, succeeded Fabio Gamba as EBAA CEO on April 3, 2017.
