He is former CEO of aviation leasing company AerCap
Finland’s state-run airline Finnair has proposed Klaus Heinemann to replace the current chairman of the board, Harri Sailas, who has said he will stand down from the position. Finnair is also looking for a new chief executive after Mika Vehvilainen confirmed this week that he was moving to Cargotec.
Heinemann is a former chief executive of AerCap, a Dutch-registered company engaged in the business of acquiring aviation assets and leasing, and has been a member of the board at Finnair for a year. He has more than 25 years’ experience in the aviation financing industry. He also held prominent positions at DVB Bank, the Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan, the Aviation Group and the Bank of America.
