At Global Jet Capital, Chris will be responsible for the leadership of the company’s worldwide legal organisation with a mandate focused on accelerating growth through domestic and international markets.

In more than 20 years practicing law, Chris has gained significant experience in commercial transactions, corporate governance, M&A and corporate finance. Previously, Chris served as CIT Group's Chief Corporate Counsel, CIT Bank’s Corporate Secretary and CIT Group’s Chief M&A Counsel. In these roles, Chris was a key member of the team that changed CIT's business mix and restructured CIT's balance sheet following the company's emergence from bankruptcy. Prior to joining CIT, Chris was a partner with the international law firm of McDermott Will & Emery LLP in its New York office.

Chris received his Bachelor's degree from Colgate University and his Law degree from The University of Connecticut School of Law. He is admitted to the bar in Connecticut and New York.

Chris Paul said: “I’m excited to be joining this dynamic organisation. In a very short time Global Jet Capital has positioned itself as a leader in business aviation financing solutions and I’m looking forward to playing an important role in the company’s future.”

Shawn Vick, Chief Executive Officer, Global Jet Capital said: “We are delighted to have Chris join the team, his demonstrated experience and acumen in the global market place will play an important role as we execute on our growth plans.”
