Corporate Jet Investor: Kirsten Bartok: the innovator

Kirsten Bartok is No. 10 on the Corporate Jet Investor Power List 2015.

Kirsten Bartok’s CV is impressive. She has worked as a banker (Goldman Sachs), an operator (XOJET), a manufacturer (Hawker Beechcraft) and as an entrepreneur (Airfinance). In the depths of the business jet downturn she worked hard to launch her own aircraft fund – and found serious equity – but could not find debt. This led her to the US Export Import Bank of the US.
