Bristow Group, an industrial aviation service provider, has appointed Victoria Lazar as general counsel and corporate secretary. In this role, she will be responsible for all legal aspects of the business, corporate compliance, and insurance.

Lazar will report directly to Bristow Group President and CEO Don Miller. “Victoria’s extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions, market transactions and integrations will be an asset to Bristow as we emerge from our financial restructuring and look to address some of the industry’s biggest challenges like market consolidation, diversification, and market oversupply,” Miller said.

Lazar joins Bristow after more than 11 years at General Electric, most recently as executive counsel, M&A. She was previously associate general counsel for GE Oil & Gas and led the formation of Baker Hughes, a GE company. Lazar also served on the senior management board of the Drilling, Production & Surface division.
