The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) is looking for a new CEO to succeed Brian Humphries, who will become part-time president of the Brussels, Belgium-based group. Humphries took the chief executive’s position on a part-time basis in 2004, having previously been EBAA chairman while also serving as managing director of Shell Aviation. In practice he has been working full-time–albeit partly from his home in the UK–and now feels that EBAA needs a chief executive based permanently at its headquarters in Brussels. “We want to find someone with charisma and the right expertise,” Humphries told AIN, adding that EBAA would like to fill the position by the summer. From May 22 to 24 EBAA will host the seventh annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Geneva. The association this year is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
