CHC makes interim chief financial officer permanent

The interim chief financial officer (CFO) of helicopter operator CHC Group has been appointed to a permanent CFO role.

CHC said on Monday that Scott Thanisch, also a senior vice president of the company, served as the interim CFO since October with responsibility for the company’s global finance organization.

Thanisch became the interim CFO after Lee Eckert vacated the position and left the company to become the CFO at Flowserve.

Karl Fessenden, president and CEO of CHC Helicopter, said: “We are delighted to have Scott take on the CFO role at such an important point in CHC’s transformation I am confident his breadth of expertise in finance, treasury and strategy will serve us well as we continue our focus on delivering profitable growth. I want to congratulate Scott on behalf of the CHC board of managers and our management team.”

Thanisch added: “I am honored to have this opportunity. I look forward to continuing working closely with the talented team at CHC and contributing to our future success.”

Thanisch joined CHC in April 2016 as a vice president and treasurer, leading CHC’s financial planning and analysis and treasury functions throughout the company’s financial restructuring. He has more than 20 years of progressive leadership positions in finance, treasury, and corporate development with companies including PLH Group, Dell, and Sabre.

He holds an MBA from Southern Methodist University and a BBA in accounting from the University of Texas.

This announcement comes only days after CHC won a contract from Centrica to provide helicopter services in support of its forthcoming drilling program at the Fogelberg field in the Norwegian Sea.
