Wikoff to leave AerCap

AerCap has announced today that John Wikoff will be stepping down as Head of Investor Relations and transfer this position to Brian Canniffe.

Wikoff joined AerCap in November 2014 to assume the role of Head of Investor Relations. Prior to this he worked with AerCap over many years in a banking capacity in his role as head of transportation finance at Goldman Sachs.

“We thank John for the contributions he has made in developing our Investor Relations platform and enhancing other areas of our organization over the past several years. He has been of great value to AerCap,” said Keith Helming, Chief Financial Officer, AerCap. John will continue to work for AerCap as an advisor until Mid-2017.

Brian Canniffe will become head of investor relations, based at AerCap’s office in Dublin. He has 20 years of experience in banking, lending and the capital markets.  Canniffe’s most recent position was with Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong and Tokyo as the managing director, Asia Pacific head of global markets financing, where he led a division that was responsible for providing secured financing, trading, clearing, reporting and various treasury functions in the Asia Pacific region. In addition, he held roles within the financing divisions at Nomura Securities and Bankers Trust International.

“Brian’s extensive experience in the financial markets will be a valuable addition to the AerCap team,” added Helming.
