Flightglobal advisory service Ascend has once again been voted appraiser of the year at the Aviation 100 awards.
The award was announced at the Aviation Economics Growth Frontiers conference in Dublin on 20 January.
This is the third time in four years that Ascend has won the award, organised by Aviation Economics and determined by votes from airline, aviation banking, leasing, and law professionals, and aircraft and engine broker and trader specialists.
“After a four-month industry vote, it was determined that Ascend was the industry choice as leading appraiser of the year for the third time in the past four years,” says Airline Economics – Aviation News Online’s managing director Philip Tozer-Pennington. “Ascend was once again the clear industry favourite during 2013.”
Ascend's head of advisory Rob Morris says the appraiser was “delighted to receive this continued show of confidence from across the air finance sector”.
He adds: “At Ascend we have a strong, committed team supported by our unrivalled aircraft values and histories databases which underpin our service. Receiving this award shows recognition in our quality and dedication to the market.
“Ascend is committed to helping its customers shape their business strategies and make better decisions faster with our services. We are currently expanding our offering to the helicopter valuations and further exciting developments are planned for 2014.”
In recognition of the award, Ascend’s industry experts will be hosting a free webinar entitled “2014 – the 100 billion dollar baby!" on 6 February, at 15:00-16:00 GMT.
