FORMER DAIMLER-Benz Aerospace (DASA) finance chief Manfred Bischoff has officially taken over as chairman of the German company.

The change took place formally on 24 May, when Bischoff's forerunner Jurgen Schrempp moved up to take the helm of DASA's Stuttgart-based parent company, Daimler-Benz. The new director of finance is Wolfgang Piller, hitherto DASA general representative in business development.
