ACIA Aero Leasing, a provider of regional aircraft leasing and lease management services, added Mark Dunnachie to the company’s commercial team as senior vice president of commercial. Dunnachie will lead initiatives to expand the reach of the lessor’s platform, with the goal of targeting growth opportunities in the turboprop and freighter markets.
“I am delighted to welcome an executive of Mark’s caliber to our team.

Dunnachie’s aviation career spans more than three decades, comprising executive commercial assignments at regional manufacturers ATR, Embraer, and BAE Systems. He joined ACIA from ATR, where he served as head of commercial for Europe and North America, overseeing commercial, sales and primary customer relationships for the region. His previous 17-year-tenure at Embraer involved the roles of head of lessor sales in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and managing director of ECC Leasing, the OEM’s asset management arm, in addition to his latest position of vice president of the Asia Pacific region. Prior to Embraer, Dunnachie worked at BAE Systems in a range of executive positions, covering market planning, business development and sales. He was also actively involved in AIR International, a joint venture between ATR and BAE.
“I am excited to be joining Mick and the team at ACIA. ACIA has already built a strong and highly respected market position, and I look forward to working with the team to secure new market opportunities and grow the geographical footprint, particularly around the turboprop and freighter markets. ACIA’s existing pedigree and reputation for excellence across a wide spectrum of solutions offers clear opportunities for further growth in the regional sector,” Dunnachie said.
