Organisational Structure
AWG is comprised of leading aviation manufacturers, financiers, and lessors. Uniquely, it brings these three perspectives to bear in addressing aviation financing and leasing topics.


The Co-Chairs of AWG, its executive officers, are Francois Collet, Airbus, and Daniel da Silva, Boeing.

The Secretary General of AWG, Jeffrey Wool, organises and coordinates the internal and external activities and communications of AWG. Mr. Wool performs these functions on secondment from Blakes Cassels & Graydon. Blakes Cassels & Graydon also serves as outside counsel to AWG.

AWG has a Board of Directors. The current Board members are: Nelson Salgado (Embraer), David Walton (BOC Aviation), Mark Brady (Rolls-Royce), Patrick Kaufer (Deutsche Bank), Francois Collet (Airbus), Daniel da Silva (Boeing), and Jeffrey Wool (AWG).


AWG work is organised around a set of projects to which subgroup members contribute their specific expertise. This ensures that AWG views and positions reflect current and practical thinking.
