Cassidian, subsidiary responsible for the Defence business of the European multinational EADS, has approved a reorganization of its Spanish subsidiary and named as higher responsible of the group to Pilar Albiac Murillo, 59, born at Zaragoza. Former general director of Cassidian in Spain, Enrique Barrientos, will continue in his charge and will depend on the new responsible, one of the few women that is part of the senior management of the European aeronautical group.

Albiac Muri­llo, until now head of Quality and Lean Management at Airbus, will also be the maximum responsible of the new Operations Department of the company, in charge of innovation and ensuring the deve­lopment, the production and the effective launch of the products.

Before joining Airbus, Albiac worked for more than 25 years in the American multinational General Motors, where she played different responsibilities in Zaragoza and United States. She was the drector of Quality and Lean and leaded auto factory of Saginaw, Michigan (USA).

According to some analysts, with this appointment, Cassidian attaches more importance to its Spanish business, since it will be in the hands of one of the executives of trust of the current CEO, Ber­nhard Gerwert, who assumed the position on September.
