Greg Azzara, chief operating officer of BBAM Limited Partnership, will retire and be replaced by Vincent Cannon, who was appointed to the role of general counsel and chief operating officer. Azzara will remain with BBAM as an advisor to the company’s executive committee through March 31, 2021.
“During a long and successful career at BBAM, Greg built our legal and operations functions as we grew from a small division of a larger company into the leading independent aircraft leasing company in the world,” Steve Zissis, CEO of BBAM, said. “We are indebted to Greg for his dedication to BBAM, which spans more than two decades, first as one of BBAM’s first lawyers, then as our general counsel and finally as our COO. We wish him all the best during his retirement.”
Cannon is currently senior vice president, corporate legal, a position he has held since joining BBAM in 2014. Prior to joining BBAM, Cannon practiced law at Davis Polk & Wardwell.
“I’m very happy to welcome Vince to a new role at BBAM,” Zissis said. “He has a deep understanding of our firm and our business, having played a role as an advisor and leader on many of our most important initiatives over the last several years.”
BBAM is a dedicated manager of investments in leased commercial jet aircraft providing more than 200 airline customers in more than 50 countries with fleet and financing solutions over the last three decades.
