Cobham said Kahn, who stepped down as head of Airbus UK in July as part of a corporate shake-up, will take up his new job on Oct. 2.

Michel Emelianoff, who currently holds the role, will leave Cobham by the end of the calendar year, following a handover period.

Reuters reported on Sept. 21 that Kahn was set to join Cobham to help Chief Executive David Lockwood lead a turnaround of the firm.
