Aviado has delivered tremendous real and measurable value to the acquisition and their work has tremendously enhanced the investment profile of the transaction. Shakeel Adam has proved himself to have an unparalleled network within the airline industry. The quality of the work product delivered by Aviado has far exceeded our expectations. For this reason we are pleased to expand Aviado's mandate to support more areas of this transaction. Having worked with numerous other experts, we are please to now focus on working with Aviado Partners as our exclusive aviation expert team because of the proven track record having delivered on multiple engagements with us as well as the strong reputation in the market of the company and its team members. Aviado proved they aren't like other consultants. Shakeel and his team have been hands-on from day 1 and have proved they know what it takes to manage an airline at the most senior levels. They saved us time and money and the transaction is moving quickly with their help.” Founder, Investment Management Firm.
