Mike Powell

Chief Financial Officer
Wizz Air

Having gained a degree in Management Science from UMIST, Manchester in 1988, Mike spent 18 years analyzing the European airline and airport sectors for several investment banks, based in London and Madrid. Through this period he was part of a highly rated transport team and took part in many of the key transactions in the sector, including lead roles in the privatization of Air France and Fraport. In 2007 he satisfied a long held desire to get a ‘proper job' in the airline industry by taking up his current position with Wizz Air. Since its first flight in 2004 Wizz Air has grown rapidly such that it now handles over 12 million passengers a year, making it Europe's fifth largest LCC. WIzz Air is also one of the three most profitable airlines in Europe. Mike's responsibilities include Fleet Acquisition and Financing, Financial Planning and Control, Accounting and Tax, Treasury, Purchasing and IT. Born in Cardiff, Wales in 1966, Mike lives in Geneva with his wife and three children.
