Global Jet Capital appointed Alexander Tang associate sales director for Asia, based in Hong Kong.
Tang began his career as a tax associate in the financial service industry sector at PricewaterhouseCoopers. At PwC, he provided tax audit and tax consulting services for financial agencies. During that time, he focused on cross-border transaction tax issues faced by aircraft lessors while conducting business.
Tang then joined Chailease Finance as a member of the structured finance team, where he served as assistant manager and regional manager. While at Chailease, he led the team’s origination activities in Asia Pacific with focus particularly in the Philippines and Australia. With his knowledge in aircraft leasing tax transactions, he delivered multiple bespoke financing solutions on aviation related assets including helicopters, business jets, aircraft spare engines and aircraft simulators.
“Asia has shown strong economic growth in the past decade and the trend is expected to boost the regional market’s demand for business aviation. I am excited to join this dynamic team in APEC as the market matures,” Tang said. “The Global Jet Capital team has great experience, leadership and the industry know-how. I certainly look forward to provid[ing] bespoke financing solutions and serv[ing] our clients with the highest standards.”
Tang will work with Violet Kwek, Global Jet Capital’s sales director – Greater China and North Asia.
“Alex is bringing a wealth of expertise to this role and we feel confident that he will make a valuable addition to our team,” Kwek said. “His experience with the benefits in the leasing of aircraft will provide crucial insight for our customers to assist them in navigating complex transactions.”
