Granite Creek Capital invests in Odyssey Aviation US

Granite Creek Capital Partners, a private investment firm based in Chicago, has made an investment in Odyssey Aviation US, a Fixed Based Operator (FBO) that provides fuel, hangar rental, aircraft de-icing, and other services to private aviation customers and air cargo operators at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (ISM) in Florida and the Willow Run Airport in Michigan. 

Granite Creek’s investment supports a broader recapitalisation of Odyssey with Equivu Capital, LLC, the investment arm of Odyssey’s CEO Salvatore Calvino, becoming majority shareholder of the company.
In conjunction with Granite Creek’s investment in Odyssey, Granite Creek partners Mark Radzik and Jim Clark will join its board of directors.
Odyssey is led by Salvatore Calvino, CEO, and Ken Allison, President, highly-tenured executives with decades of combined experience in the FBO industry and aviation services. Granite Creek’s investment, along with Calvino and Allison’s leadership, will help strengthen Odyssey’s existing service offerings, support the growth of the operating team, and facilitate the company’s continued expansion in existing and new geographies.
