When the COVID-19 pandemic reached the United States and Arizona issued a stay-at-home order, Mike Bianco, CEO of AvAir, handed each of his employees $500 bonus to spend at small and local businesses in the community.
Bianco was the first employee of AvAir, which was launched in 2000 by his brother-in-law. Today, it has 2,400 customers in 118 countries.
The most rewarding part of what he does, he says, is seeing his team happy.
“Whether we host a group workout or provide lunch from a local food truck, they’re always excited to spend time together and enjoy each other’s company. The happier they are, the more I want to do for them,” he says.
He also volunteers with the community, and is a member of The Thunderbirds.
He and his wife, Candace, are also involved in People Acting Now Discover Answers (PANDA).
Bianco is a strong believer in the laws of attraction and manifesting and lives by the quote from Albert Einstein, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
