IBA has announced the
appointment of Adrian Lee as Head of Aircraft Transaction Management. The role
has been created to bring highly focused expertise to the management and
remarketing of IBA’s existing asset management portfolio, and to meet an
industry increase in aircraft transitioning – both in terms of fleet renewals
and retirements. Furthermore, a number of financial institutions are
outsourcing part or all of their portfolio management to IBA.
Adrian has a total of 27 years experience in the finance,
aviation, aircraft remarketing and management industries, first working in
aviation remarketing in 1998.
Prior to joining IBA, Adrian held senior positions with Standard
Chartered Bank and was Vice President at Focus Aviation.
Adrian said “I am joining IBA at an exciting time in the
industry cycle, and have identified significant opportunities based on my
previous experience combined with IBA’s industry standing and knowledge of their
Phil Seymour president and chief executive officer
added “With Adrian’s skill-set in the area of aircraft sales, sourcing and
remarketing we can now confidently claim to be the aviation industry’s only
multi-specialist in terms of appraisal, technical management, consulting and
remarketing. For clients who require a full service aircraft asset management
platform we are the only professionals in the market to offer such a broad
range of services backed by such an experienced team.”
IBA’s in-house team of technical surveyors, analysts,
asset managers, appraisers and advisers has now grown to 35.
