“We are delighted to have Scott take on the CFO role at such an important point in CHC’s transformation,” said Karl Fessenden, president and CEO of CHC Helicopter. “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 joined CHC in April 2016 as its vice president and treasurer, leading financial planning and analysis and treasury functions during CHC’s restructuring. He previously worked in financial, treasury and corporate development roles for more than 20 years, at companies including PLH Group, Dell and Sabre.

“I am honoured to have this opportunity,” he said. “I look forward to continuing working closely with the talented team at CHC and contributing to our future success.”
