Although AerSale is a young company, its senior management is comprised of tenured aviation professionals that have collectively administered executive management of all critical aspects of the aviation aftermarket during prior careers with airlines, leasing companies, parts sales and MRO organizations (see ‘management team’). Together they have served to earn customer loyalty by consistently meeting transactional commitments, while working closely with customers and suppliers alike to develop collaborative relationships that underscore mutually beneficial objectives.
AerSale’s founding principals Nicolas Finazzo and Robert Nichols most recently served as the Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, respectively, of Miami, Florida based AeroTurbine, Inc., which they co-founded in 1997 and sold to Amsterdam based AerCap in April 2006. Together with Green Equity Investors V, L.P., an affiliate of Leonard Green & Partners, L.P., they have a shared vision of how to supply cost effective aftermarket flight equipment to the aviation industry, while at the same time providing the highest level of customer satisfaction.
Looking to the future, AerSale is seeking to explore corporate acquisition and partnership opportunities to accelerate operational development in:
- Aircraft & engine lease portfolio growth
- Aircraft & engine spares network expansion
- Incorporation of synergistic aircraft, engine and component MRO capabilities
