Milestone Aviation adds Peter Bull to the group’s advisory board


Aviation veteran, Peter Bull, is the newest addition to the Milestone Aviation Group team.

Milestone Aviation Group, a helicopter leasing company, has appointed Peter Bull, a specialist in aviation risk, as a new member of the group’s Advisory Board.

Richard Santulli, Milestone chairman and chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted that Peter has joined our Advisory Board. Asset and risk management are the backbone of our business and central to what we do. Peter’s depth of industry knowledge and experience will undoubtedly strengthen and enhance our already robust systems.”

Bull said: “Milestone is an incredibly impressive company with a talented team that is setting the standard for the helicopter leasing market. I look forward to putting my experience to work for Milestone, to help position the company for continued growth.”

Bull brings more than 30 years of industry experience to the group, having held a range of senior positions in aircraft maintenance, leasing, asset management, risk consulting and continuing airworthiness. Most recently he worked as an executive director on the group board of Airclaims, responsible for the leadership of their aviation risk and asset management business worldwide. Prior to joining Airclaims, Bull spent five years as head of the Aviation Risk Consulting team at Willis Global Aviation.

He is also a fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, the Institute of Directors and the Chartered Management Institute.

Speaking of the new appointment, Matthew Harris, Milestone chief operating officer, said: “We are excited to work with someone of Peter’s calibre and depth of experience. Milestone’s growth over the past three years is underpinned by robust internal systems and processes that create the platform necessary to support our current portfolio and future growth plans.”

“Part of Peter’s role will be to help us refine the architecture of our business to ensure that we maintain the very highest levels of service and support for customers, investors, lenders and business partners worldwide,” he added.

Milestone specialises in leasing helicopters and was launched in 2010. It has offices in Dublin, Ireland and Columbus, Ohio. Last month, Milestone closed a $600 million revolving credit facility to fund the acquisition of more helicopters and further company growth.
