Thursday
  • An Evening with Dómhnal Slattery, CEO and Founder, Avolon

  • Jun 6, 2019 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm
  • Location: Grant Thornton, Dublin
  • Description:

    IIBN Dublin and Grant Thornton are delighted to host one of Ireland's leading entrepreneurs, Dómhnal Slattery, for a Keynote Presentation on Thursday, 6th June 2019.  

    Former GPA executive Domhnal Slattery (52) made €32m when he sold aircraft leasing company Avolon to Chinese firm Bohai for €1.2bn in 2015.  He is still leading the firm and it has been a busy year, with a huge €10bn order for 100 Airbus jets going through in December.

    Last year, Orix Corporation bought 30pc of Avolon through the Japanese group's Dublin-based aviation subsidiary for $2.2bn (€1.93bn), implying an Avolon enterprise value of $23.7bn (€20.8bn).

    Now based in Hong Kong, where he still leads Avolon, Slattery made his first big splash when he sold his first aviation business, International Aviation Management, to RBS for €45m in 2001. 

    Join us for what should be a fascinating insight into the world of aviation and the entrepreneurial challenges associated…
