The Cirrus board of directors opted not to renew company cofounder and chairman Alan Klapmeier’s contract and instead installed his brother, Dale, the other cofounder, as the new chairman. This announcement came just one week after Alan failed in his bid to acquire the SF50 Vision Jet program from Cirrus. Since late September, Dale and company president and CEO Brent Wouters have been running Cirrus Aircraft.
