Avinco has launched Avinco Americas Corporation (AAC), with an office in Manhattan, New York. The US office has been set up to support the expansion of the company’s helicopter and commercial aircraft activities in North America.

Aurélie Millet, commercial director of Avinco will be moving to the US to develop the helicopter commercial activity alongside Kris DeSoto who joined Avinco Americas this month as commercial director North America.

Avinco already has a strong foothold in Canadian and South American markets and is looking to strengthen this further, and develop its network and business in the US.

The company is also currently setting up its Commercial Aircraft commercial team to develop its remarketing, finance structuring, leasing and asset management activity in North America.

“We are very excited to launch Avinco Americas and very fortunate to have attracted someone like Kris DeSoto at this critical juncture in Avinco’s development.”

François Gautier, CEO of Avinco said: “We are very excited to launch Avinco Americas and very fortunate to have attracted someone like Kris DeSoto at this critical juncture in Avinco’s development. It has become increasingly important to us to support our expanding commercial activities in the Americas with the right resource and infrastructure; we see Aurélie’s transfer and Kris’s appointment and as perfect combination which will play a significant role the success of this launch.”

Kris DeSoto added: ”I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play a role in the development of Avinco Americas, and to work with Aurélie and Avinco’s Global team.”
