We have all read about — or talked about (mostly behind their backs) — the stereotypes that have been assigned to the younger members of today’s workforce (think age 40 and younger). Too many people view today’s young business leaders as a generation of cornhole-in-the-office-playing, craft-beer-drinking, selfie-stick wielding narcissists who are way too self-involved because they grew up in an era when everyone goes home with a trophy.
Mike Bianco CEO, AvAir
Source of pride: “AvAir’s culture and reputation as a global leader in the aviation aftermarket with small company values are what makes me proud to be its newly appointed CEO.

Those initiatives include finding partners whose operations are environmentally conscious. AvAir’s headquarters runs entirely on solar energy, and I expect to see more companies following suit.”
