Board Update : Justin Bickle

The Board of Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) announces with great sadness the passing of its Board colleague, Justin Bickle.

Mr. Bickle, 51, was Executive Chairman of Eagle Street Partners, a pan-European real estate investment manager. He joined NAC as a non-executive Director in the midst of the covid crisis in January 2021 which severely impacted NAC and the entire aircraft leasing industry. As Chair of the Restructuring Committee until June 2022, he was instrumental in helping NAC successfully restructure over $6B of debt and emerge from Chapter 11 recently.

NAC Chairman, Klaus Heinemann, comments “The Board of NAC has lost a truly gifted colleague. Justin was a Director with great vision, experience, an eye for detail and a relentless drive to improve the situation of NAC. We shall miss him greatly on the Board and as a friend."

Norman C.T. Liu, President & CEO of NAC, said “Justin was a key player in driving our financial restructuring and his passing is a tremendous loss for NAC. He was very well admired and respected by the NAC team and within the European private equity, restructuring and real estate communities. During this difficult time, we extend our deepest, heartfelt condolences to Justin’s wife, children and entire family."
