Rod Sheridan is new Vice Chairman of the Board
Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC), the world’s largest regional aircraft leasing company, today announced the appointment of Rod Sheridan as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Rod brings nearly three decades of aviation experience to NAC as a long-time executive of Bombardier Aerospace (where he was most recently Vice President of Sales and Asset Management) and its predecessor companies de Havilland and Boeing Canada. In the 20 years supporting Bombardier Regional Aircraft’s trading group he concluded over 1,600 acquisitions, sales and leases for the manufacturer and its financiers. In tackling the secondary market for the 50-seat CRJ fleets, Rod and the team team facilitated a number of ventures designed to develop new operators outside North America and Europe. In addition to managing the Asset Management team, for the past six years he has led business development in Russia and the CIS for Bombardier and Lessor Sales. Prior to announcing his retirement from Bombardier in October of 2014, Rod directed the sale of over 70 Bombardier C Series aircraft to operating lessors.
“We are delighted to have such a high caliber individual as Rod Sheridan join the NAC senior management team,” said Nordic Aviation Capital Chairman Martin Møller. “We have worked together for many years – negotiating and building aircraft transactions – and it is an honour to have Rod by our side now. His expertise will be invaluable as we look to drive more growth for NAC.
“I am very pleased to join Martin and the dynamic team at NAC. Nordic Aviation Capital has become one of the major players and influencers in the regional aircraft fraternity this past decade and I look forward to lending strategic advice and counsel as their business grows,” added Rod Sheridan.
Rod will continue to be based in his home city of Toronto, Canada.
