Jean-Luc Lagardère Wins Prestigeous Aviation Week Laureate Award

Jean-Luc Lagardère Wins Prestigeous Aviation Week Laureate Award

Washington, D.C. -- 26 April 2001 --. (EADS) --

Jean-Luc Lagardère, Chairman of EADS European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from U.S.-based Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine (AW&ST). The award was presented on Wednesday by the French Ambassador to the United States, François Bujon de l'Estang, at a gala dinner at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington. Mr. Lagardère, also President of the Lagardère Group, received the award for his lifelong contribution to the progress and development of the aerospace industry. The award will make him a permanent member of the exclusive Laureates Hall of Fame, which is on display at the Air and Space museum in Washington.

Other categories of Laureate Trophies will be awarded to such prominent industry figures as John Hamre, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense, now the president and CEO at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), as well as John Dasburg, president and CEO of Northwest Airlines.

"It has been said that aerospace is the most challenging business in the world," said Kenneth E. Gazzola, Aviation Week Executive Vice President and Publisher. "Mr. Lagardère epitomizes the values and vision of the global aerospace industry and the Hall of Fame rightly secures his place in history."

EADS Chairman Manfred Bischoff applauds Aviation Week's recognition of Mr. Lagardère: "Jean-Luc shared the vision of an integrated European industry, known around the world as an equal partner and leader in its field. With a few others, foremost, his friend Jürgen Schrempp, Chairman and CEO of DaimlerChrysler, Jean Luc had the courage to realize his challenging goals."

The CEOs of EADS, Philippe Camus and Rainer Hertrich, praise Mr. Lagardère for his past accomplishments and present contributions: "His entrepreneurial, competitive spirit has been invaluable in leading our 21st-Century global aerospace company."

The Laureate, one of the global aerospace industry's highest honors, was created in 1957 with the launch of AW&ST's annual Laurels Citations to recognize individual and team accomplishments in aviation and aerospace. In 1997, AW&ST launched the Laureates Hall of Fame, a permanent public archive of Laureate winners and legendary Laurels winners. Then, in 1989, the Laureate Trophy was added to honor extraordinary leadership and heroism.

Also in 1989, Jean-Luc Lagardère, Philippe Camus and Jean-Louis Gergorin were honored by Aviation Week when they received a Laureate Award for their teamwork and forward-looking plan to establish a multinational European aerospace company.

EADS is the world's third largest aerospace company, with 2000 revenues of EUR 24.2 billion. Some of the company's hallmark products include the future Airbus A380 super jumbo, Eurocopter's EC 155, and the new Eurofighter combat jet aircraft. The company was founded on July 10, 2000. It was the result of a merger between Aerospatiale Matra of France, DaimlerChrysler Aerospace of Germany and CASA of Spain. It employs 87,000 people world-wide.
