Cristina Posik

Sales Manager

My passion for aviation can be traced back to my pre-professional years. I’ve always enjoyed traveling and it was always very exciting seeing the world from above. Born and raised in Brazil, I was fascinated with the Air Force fighter at the time, the Mirage III (F-103) that flew above my neighborhood in Annapolis. A new world opened up when I came to the United States as I was invited to be part of a team that shared the same passion for aviation. It has been over 25 years since I’ve embarked upon this industry, from Marketing to Inside Sales, Sales Team Leader to Sales Manager. I like getting people excited about the things I’m excited about. Right now, that’s AvLab and our one-of-a-kind individuals who share the same passion.
Outside of the office, I run small races and marathons, I speak several languages (Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian and a little Chinese) and I am always cooking healthy meals for my family. If you challenge me to a run, I will win. My goal is to stay healthy, sweaty and happy.
