Pari Olver Parchi, CEO of Triangle Aero states, “Triangle Aero was established with the belief that non-commercial specialised aircraft and related assets require tailored financing solutions from those that understand the complexities innate in this market. I am honoured to be leading our efforts at Triangle Aero and excited to continue to provide innovative financing solutions that address our customer’s distinct needs.”
Jeremy Barnes, Chairman of Triangle Aero and CEO of Falko states: “This is a line of business that we have looked at over the past few years with a great deal of interest but with our focus on our regional aircraft leasing activities, we could never dedicate the necessary resource to make any real progress. We have been lucky to find Pari who brings a proven track record in this field and we and Fortress look forward to supporting Triangle Aero as it builds out the business”.
