In late 2004 he was nominated as the next French CEO of EADS. This position is shared with a German—then Thomas Enders—in a system that was established at the creation of EADS in 2000.

Alleged insider dealing

News reports in June 2006 focused on possible insider dealing at EADS. Forgeard made a 2.5 million Euro profit on the sale of EADS shares, with his children earning 4.2 million Euro, just weeks before news of Airbus A380 delays was released. Forgeard denied any wrongdoing, claiming that he was a scapegoat in the matter.

Forgeard resigned as CEO of EADS on 2 July 2006 and was replaced by Christian Streiff.
