Reporting directly to C. Jeffrey Knittel, Chairman and CEO Airbus Americas, and functionally to Airbus Chief Commercial Officer Christian Scherer, Jones will lead the region’s sales, marketing, contracts, and sales finance teams.

Jones has more than two decades of experience in aircraft sales and marketing, and most recently worked as Vice President of Sales for Bombardier Commercial Aircraft in North America.

The appointment marks a return to Airbus Americas for Jones, who first joined Airbus in 1998 as Sales Director. He became Vice President of Marketing in 2007 and was named Vice President of Sales shortly thereafter.

Prior to joining Airbus, Jones completed a Commercial Apprenticeship at British Aerospace, combined with studies in business and finance at the University of Hertfordshire (U.K.). He then worked in Marketing and Sales in the U.S. on the Jetstream and AVRO RJ programs.

“Chris is known and respected throughout the industry for the teamwork and customer engagement that have been hallmarks of his career – both at Airbus and, more recently, at Bombardier,” said Knittel. “His experience in nurturing strong and mutually- beneficial customer relationships will serve Airbus and our airline partners well in this market. We are happy to welcome Chris back as a leader on this team.”
