LCI has promoted Terri Foley to chief operating officer (COO) and general counsel, effective immediately. Foley has a long-established career with LCI, having joined in 2008 as the company's general counsel.
Based in LCI's Dublin, Ireland head office, Foley has proven experience in aviation leasing, financing and investing, both as a legal advisor and a commercial manager. As part of the executive team, she has been responsible for LCI's major transactions from a legal, tax, compliance and structuring perspective together with the company's HR and corporate development activities globally.
Foley was admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales in 2001. She began her career with Dentons, during which time she undertook long term secondments to Airbus and to the corporate jet division of Barclays Bank.
In her new role, Foley will be responsible for global operational management of the company, focusing on enhanced efficiencies and strategic initiatives to support its continued growth. She will continue as general counsel and will focus on legal strategy and process, supported by a legal team.
CEO Jaspal Jandu says: “Terri is a tremendous asset to LCI and her elevation is thoroughly well-deserved. She has worked tirelessly as a leader and as a mentor, and will play an integral part of LCI's growth right across the aviation spectrum. We are delighted to have someone with her strong experience, knowledge and creativity as our COO and general counsel.”
Foley adds: “This is an exciting period of growth for LCI and I welcome the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The robustness and scalability of our leasing, financing and investing platform is integral to that growth. I look forward to working with our team to continue the company's development and structuring it to help us meet our ambitious growth and sustainability objectives.”
LCI maintains a growing, sustainable and future-focused fleet of young, modern aircraft. These are leased to major operators around the world and are deployed on mission critical and socially responsible sectors such as emergency medical services, search and rescue, and offshore wind.
