Seabury Capital Group appointed Richard Spaulding vice president of Seabury Aircraft Capital, an advisory and capital arranging firm for financing new and used aircraft.
With more than three decades of global aviation experience, Spaulding is a senior executive with a background in leading aircraft acquisitions and portfolio management, including managing multimillion dollar portfolios, originating commercial aviation transactions, and directing high-yield acquisition and sales campaigns.
“Richard is known in the aviation industry as an innovative thinker with a strong business strategy, product marketing, acquisition and financial portfolio management acumen,” Stacey Wilson, managing director of Seabury Aircraft Capital, said. “Richard’s track record of buying, selling and financing more than 300 aircraft and aircraft engines transactions adds valuable expertise and perspective to our leadership team, which will help enhance our comprehensive, best-in-class support for airlines, manufacturers and investors vying to take full advantage of growth opportunities.”
Most recently, Spaulding was president and board member of Universal Asset Management, an aircraft disassembly and parts sales company. Previously, he served as senior managing director at GMT Global Republic Aviation, where he was responsible for the management of the company’s aviation portfolio, which included overseeing the acquisition of commercial aircraft on lease to international airlines, as well as the disposition of aviation assets through either sales or disassembly. Spaulding has also provided professional advisory services to commercial aviation equity investors and commercial banks in the aviation asset acquisition and sales arena.
“I look forward to working with the SAC team, who boast a two-decade-plus formidable track record in pioneering financing structures and financing more than 1,000 aircraft, to scale up SAC’s service offerings and further cement its reputation as the most efficient and reliable aircraft financing team in the business,” Spaulding said.
