Klapmeier continued, “Transitioning out of day-to-day operations will give me the opportunity to focus on long-term strategic opportunities… I could not be more confident in the team and I am excited about what lies ahead for the entire Cirrus family. For Cirrus Aircraft employees, partners and owners around the world, the best is yet to come.”
