Welcome to the Team: Emily Zupan

Emily Zupan was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Los Angeles, California, at 19 years old to attend The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Upon graduation, she began her career as a personal stylist. It was through that industry she found her true passion for sales and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2014 where she soon became a leader and top seller in the hospitality industry with the Hakkasan group. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic encouraged Emily to look at other industries outside of hospitality and she accepted an executive account manager position with Global Cannabinoids selling CBD and sanitizer products. Hungry for more, Emily is excited to join the Business Development team at AvAir, where she will bring her high-end sales experience and enthusiasm to work with an already very successful team.

Outside of work, Emily enjoys a very dedicated health and wellness routine that involves personal training, running, and meditation and spending free time with her friends and family.

AvAir Acquires Sabena technics Surplus Inventory

CHANDLER, Ariz. —  AvAir, an industry-leading inventory solutions provider for the aviation aftermarket, has entered an agreement with Sabena technics to acquire the MRO’s surplus inventory, including both consumables and expendables in new condition.

This agreement covers both airframe & component surplus materials used for heavy maintenance on various AIRBUS family, ATR and C130 aircrafts. They will be made available to AvAir customers globally, as many aircraft are requiring maintenance checks to go back into service after being parked due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a leading independent provider of MRO solutions, Sabena technics provides high-quality component testing, maintenance, repair and overhaul as well as pool access, consignment stock and trading solutions to its customers worldwide. Thanks to its own in-house component shops in Europe and Asia, Sabena technics can deliver flexible and efficient services guaranteeing high availability and reduced TATs.

“By selling our surplus, we mainly aim to optimize our inventory. It allows us to invest and further expand our stocks so we can better serve our customers,” said Ludovyc Lecherbonnier, vice president of component solutions for Sabena technics. “We are very pleased with the solution AvAir has provided us and are delighted to keep strengthening our partnership of many years.”

“We’re happy to continue to meet Sabena technic’s needs through our custom-fit solutions,” said Mike Bianco, CEO of AvAir. “Our strategic partnership is a win-win for our customers who will continue to receive top quality parts and service.”
