APR 6, 2018 - 7:23 am
CSI Leasing will now offer equipment lifecycle and leasing solutions for aircraft ground support equipment. In conjunction with the launch of this new offering, CSI hired industry expert Neil Bennett to lead the initiative as GSE leasing global manager.
“We are excited to welcome Neil to the CSI team. He brings a wealth of industry knowledge and knows ground support equipment inside and out,” said Steve Hamilton, vice chairman and CEO of CSI Leasing. “Neil’s expertise, combined with CSI’s global footprint and customized financial solutions, will provide GSE companies with the tools they need for future growth.”
CSI will offer airlines, airports, air cargo, fixed-based operators and ground handlers with global financial solutions for a wide variety of industry-essential equipment.
“As an industry veteran, it doesn’t take long for me to see how CSI stands out,” Bennett said. “For years, customers have been asking me for a true global solution. Now, I can confidently say I have one with CSI. Our ability to lease GSE in more than 36 countries is revolutionary in this industry.”
In addition to global leasing capabilities, GSE customers will have the advantage of CSI’s online asset system, MyCSI, on a global basis as well.
“Offering our GSE customers a way to keep up with their leased assets all over the world from one portal will save them an enormous amount of time and headaches,” Bennett said. “The system is very impressive.”
Neil brings 37 years of GSE experience to CSI. Prior to joining the company, he worked for TCF Equipment Finance and Somerset Aviation Capital in a variety of areas, including sales, leasing, finance and asset management. He is based in Seattle.
