The Team

With decades of experience and team member pedigrees that include airlines, lessors, banks, appraisers, and OEMs, Zephyrus is able to craft transactions through the lens of each stakeholder in a transaction. Each Zephyrus team member is committed to and is intentionally focused on building and maintaining deep relationships with key decision makers throughout the aviation industry, and through these relationships, Zephyrus has direct access across the aviation value chain to OEMs, lessors, airlines, lenders, service providers, and part-out companies.
