Richard Ragains

Representative Director
Aviation Management Services

Richard founded Aviation Management Services K.K. in 2014 as Japan’s leading independent provider of consulting and management support services for commercial aircraft owners and investors.
Headquartered in Tokyo, the company is ideally positioned to grow as Japan is one of the world’s largest markets for aircraft finance. AMS assists clients in identifying, inspecting and acquiring aircraft assets around the world. It also provides a range of services for the oversight of aircraft leases, insurance, maintenance, inspection, upgrades and periodic valuations. Over the past four years, AMS has helped broker over a dozen deals, valued at over $1 billion, involving the supply of aircraft to major commercial carriers in North America, Europe and Asia. 
A graduate of Willamette University in Oregon, Richard began his career at Goldman Sachs Tokyo. As part of his 30 years of corporate experience in Japan, he was sales manager at MCI Worldcom and Level 3 Communications. In addition to being representative director of AMS, Richard is founder and senior advisor at SHJ Talent and president of Alberta SAS, which has been involved in ECA transactions with an Indonesian air carrier.
