Willis Lease Finance Corporation announced Marc Pierpoint has joined the firm as its Vice President, Portfolio Management & Trading.

“Marc brings strong leadership skills to Willis Lease and has extensive experience in business development, sales, engine leasing, asset trading, engineering and finance,” said Charles F. Willis, Chairman and CEO.  “His background in the aviation industry and his extensive professional network are solid assets, which will be excellent additions, as we continue to enhance our senior management team.”

Over the past 27 years, Pierpoint served in increasingly responsible positions with Rolls-Royce PLC, Rolls-Royce Capital Ltd. and IAE International Aero Engines AG, including serving as Treasurer of IAE for nearly a decade. Immediately before joining Willis Lease, Pierpoint served as Vice President, Lessors for Rolls-Royce North America and before that Pierpoint was Treasurer and then VP Leasing & Asset Management for IAE. Over the course of his career, Pierpoint has been heavily involved in billions of dollars of aircraft and engine financing, sales and aftermarket transactions involving airlines and leasing companies around the world

“Marc brings a wide array of tools to the Company and is an exceptional hire for us,” said Brian R. Hole, President. “Marc’s deep and varied experience combined with excellent customer relationships makes Marc the ideal person to help us continue to grow and re-shape our portfolio going forward,” Hole remarked.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my career at Rolls-Royce and am thankful for the many relationships I made during my time there. I am equally excited, though, about the opportunity to join a great team at Willis Lease and be a part of ongoing efforts to grow and refine the exceptional platform here,” said Pierpoint.

Willis Lease Finance Corporation leases large and regional spare commercial aircraft engines, auxiliary power units and aircraft to airlines, aircraft engine manufacturers and maintenance, repair and overhaul providers in 120 countries.
