Zedra appoints new director to spearhead aviation and marine structuring growth


Zedra’s Isle of Man operating company has appointed Edward Leigh as its new client director for the private aviation and marine sectors.Leigh has over 17 years experience in the aviation and marine industries and prior to joining Zedra, he held the role of director at Equiom Group, again specialising in aviation and marine structuring.

With a detailed understanding of the particular needs of this specialised sector, Leigh’s appointment reflects ZEDRA’s commitment to developing its business across these markets.
Leigh says: “The private marine and aviation markets have both rebounded strongly as the global pandemic evolves, with operators and owners demonstrating vision and flexibility in the ways in which assets such as private jets have been deployed. This is an entrepreneurial and vibrant sector, with strong demand for innovative structuring solutions for holding and commercially operating marine and aviation assets. I am looking forward to adding my experience and to contributing to Zedra‘s growth in the market.”
Joanna Bodell, managing director of Zedra in the Isle of Man, adds: “Aviation, marine and crewing markets offer enormous prospects for growth for ZEDRA. Our company is perfectly placed to take advantage of this potential from our base in the Isle of Man, from where we support families and corporate owners globally with industry experts across 14 countries spanning Asia, Oceania the Americas and Europe.”
Leigh is a Fellow of the Chartered Governance Institute, a member of STEP and a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments and has over 23 years experience in the offshore financial services sector.
