“Colin is an accomplished and market-savvy leader in the aircraft leasing industry. His in-depth industry knowledge and familiarity with the EMEA markets will establish an immediate regional presence that will deliver increased customer relationships”

ILFC Chief Executive Officer, Henri Courpron commented, “Our business is certainly one of a global nature and our desire is to be closer to our customers so that we may be increasingly responsive in the support and strategies we offer.
