Formed in 2010, Avolon is led by an experienced team who have scaled the business to become one of the top five leasing firms in the world in just six years.
Avolon’s growth and global platform is underpinned by a clear set of corporate values and a strong commitment to corporate and social responsibility (CSR). Avolon recently expanded its CSR programmes to develop its ‘CARE’ Initiative; an employee led and founded programme aimed at supporting philanthropic projects in the communities where the business operates. The initiative aims to promote innovation, education and change under four pillars: Community; CARE Days; Resources; and, Education & Entrepreneurship. In October 2015, Avolon launched two new programmes under the CARE Initiative with the RHA: the Avolon Youthreach Programme; and, the Avolon Global Studio.
