SAN FRANCISCO, April 7, 2011 - Jackson Square Aviation, LLC is pleased to announce that it has hired
Christophe Million-Rousseau to establish the firm's Toulouse, France office
with an emphasis on new aircraft origination and capital markets activities.
As one of the world's fastest-growing commercial aircraft lessors, JSA
continues to expand its corporate platform with offices in key areas
throughout the world. Within his new role Christophe will focus on marketing
efforts in Russia, the Middle East and Africa, as well as enhancing JSA's
capital raising efforts.
"Christophe is a welcome addition to the Jackson Square team," said Rich
Wiley, Jackson Square's President and CEO. "He brings a wealth of expertise
with his previous positions at manufacturers and financiers, most recently
serving a wide array of airlines and lessors while at Airbus Customer
Finance. As we continue to build out our business, his large global contact
list and his track record of successful transactions will be great additions
to our franchise. Having Christophe operate out of Toulouse is a further
advantage for us, as we now have offices in the hubs of both Airbus and
Christophe joins Jackson Square from Airbus Customer Finance (Toulouse
and Washington, D.C.), where he managed a team supporting new sales campaigns
and facilitating customer access to pre-delivery and delivery financing.
During his time at Airbus, he personally transacted with approximately 60
airlines and lessors in a broad array of sales and finance assignments, in
every region of the world. His previous experience also includes positions at
Rolls-Royce Capital (London), Natixis (Paris), and CDC-IXIS (Paris).
Million-Rousseau commented, "After 15 years in customer finance, I'm very
excited that JSA is giving me the opportunity to continue to support airline
clients as their fleet and capital requirements grow. I'm thrilled to join
the leasing community at a dynamic company such as JSA. This position enables
me to leverage my skills to focus on both originating new sale/leasebacks as
well as supporting the firm's capital-raising efforts in Europe and the
Middle East. Being able to help develop both sides of JSA's business was a
big attraction for me."
Jackson Square Aviation is a full-service aircraft leasing company based
in San Francisco with offices in Seattle, London, Toulouse, Miami, and Buenos
Aires, with an Asian office opening later in 2011. JSA currently has a fleet
of over 60 aircraft (owned and committed) worth in excess of $3 billion. The
management team, which had previously worked together at Pegasus Aviation and
Sky Holding, has over 100 years of combined industry experience. Led by the
seasoned aircraft leasing trio of Richard Wiley, Toby Bright and Scott Weiss,
the team has collectively acquired over $10 billion of aircraft, has
purchased and/or remarketed over 400 aircraft, and has developed
relationships with over 30 commercial lenders and investment banks across
Europe, Asia and North America.
