GA-Finance announces re-brand, significant new investment and new additions

GA-Finance, the Amsterdam-based regional aircraft leasing company, is changing its name to TrueNoord Regional Aircraft Leasing.

Established by founder and CEO Anne-Bart Tieleman in 2002 and joined by COO Joost Schlatmann in 2007, the business specialises in leasing solutions for the regional aircraft market from its base in Amsterdam. The change of name to TrueNoord coincides with the conclusion of a capital increase programme resulting in an investment from the private equity firm Bregal Freshstream.

In addition to a change of name and attracting further capital, TrueNoord has also expanded its management team:

Angus von Schoenberg joins as Chief Investment Officer for the business.  With his extensive experience in the regional aircraft market, he will be responsible for the investment process for TrueNoord as it seeks to expand its fleet.

Two further members of the senior management team come from a finance background:

Stephen Couttie joins as Chief Financial Officer and comes from specialist PE firm Collabrium Capital. He was previously CEO of publicly listed fund management company RAB Capital plc during his career in financial services. He is a chartered accountant and qualified with KPMG.

Garry Topp joins as Chief Commercial Officer. His background is in investment banking, latterly as Executive Director at Nomura International, with prior tenure at Magpar, a specialist corporate finance business focused on the transportation and hard assets sector.
