Lease Corporation International (LCI) has announced the appointment of Terri Griffiths as its new general counsel.

Based in LCI’s headquarters in Dublin, Griffiths will take over responsibility for all of the legal aspects of LCI’s purchase, finance, leasing and sale transactions, together with all corporate activities globally. She will also work closely with the legal team at LCI’s parent company, Libra Group Services, in London.

Griffiths started her career as a solicitor with Denton Wilde Sapte. Her time at Denton Wilde Sapte included long-term secondments to Airbus in Toulouse and to the corporate jet division of Barclays Bank.

She will report to Crispin Maunder, CEO of LCI, who says: “We’re delighted to have recruited someone of Terri’s broad experience to join our leadership team, in what is a vitally important role.”

Last month LCI announced the order of six new Airbus A330-300 aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, to be delivered in 2009 and 2010. The aircraft, worth $1.2 billion at list prices, are to be placed on operating leases with Singapore Airlines.
