The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) has announced that its CEO Brandon Mitchener has resigned.
Juergen Wiese, chairman of the EBAA, 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, the 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.”
Mitchener was in the role for just one year, and the EBAA is yet to find a replacement.
EBAA has assured the public it has a robust organizational structure to ensure the success of key upcoming events, 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 with co-organizer the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) will continue uninterrupted.
Wiese, chairman of the board of governors, will be actively supported by board members Marwan Khalek, Graham Williamson, Robert Smith and Maxime Bouchard in the leading and supervising of the Secretariat.
