AvAir CEO Gives Employees Bonus to Spend at Local Businesses

Nearly half of the United States’ private workforce is employed by small business owners, and one Arizona-based CEO is helping his employees do their part to support those companies in their communities.

Mike Bianco, CEO of Chandler-based AvAir, a leader in the aftermarket aviation industry, has given each of his employees worldwide $500 and encouraged them to spend that money at small and local businesses in their communities.

A majority of AvAir’s employees have fully transitioned to working from home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and to keep the team connected it is hosting four virtual trainer-led workout classes with Scott Keppel for staff on a weekly basis as well as semi-regular webinars about healthy habits and weekly guided meditations via Zoom.

AvAir’s warehouse staff and 24/7 AOG team are still supplying emergency parts for aircraft around the clock, and the company is seeking opportunities to grow its inventory and its team. AvAir is currently hiring at its Arizona headquarters and its facility in Dublin, Ireland. Available positions include roles in the warehouse, sales and administration.
