BOC Aviation is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in New York City, its latest overseas office after Dublin, London and Tianjin. The New York office is to be co-located with the Bank of China offices at 1045 6th Avenue and will be led by Matt Baumgarth, Executive Vice-President for Airline Leasing and Sales (Americas).

Mr. Baumgarth was previously based in London as Senior Vice-President for Capital Markets. With his two decades of experience in the aviation finance industry with North American airlines and investment banks, Mr. Baumgarth will continue to build on the Company’s strong presence in the North American market.

“BOC Aviation is a global operating lessor and a U.S. presence is essential to maintaining our global footprint,” said Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. “With the opening of the New York office, we aim to better serve new and existing airline customers and aircraft investors.”
