It’s Not Just Our Tagline, It’s the Way We Do Business
At Unifi, happy employees lead to happy customers and, ultimately, happy passengers. As a service business, the people aren’t just the heart of our organization – they are the organization.
Bobby Johnson Jr.
Meet Bobby Johnson Jr, City Director at DTW. Bobby started his aviation career in 1987 as a security screener at the O’Hare Airport in Chicago. He joined Unifi in September 2020 as the Detroit City Director, where he manages three contracts and 700 employees. He is responsible for running a safe, on-time operation for Detroit customers.
In 2016 Bobby was the recipient of the Delta Chairman’s Club Award. Passionate about teaching future generations, Bobby was a mentor for nine years at Romulus Elementary, winning the 2017 Governor’s Service Award – Mentor of the Year.
He says, “I enjoy mentoring our employees about the aviation business. I appreciate the opportunities that Unifi has given me and I look forward to helping others grow.”
Meet Seana Chanel. Seana started in 2015 as an Operations Agent and is now a Station Manager at our HNL location. She manages 115 employees providing baggage service, ramp operations, and cabin services. She loves mentoring and training new hires.
She says, “Unifi has provided me with many opportunities to grow not only within the company but as an individual. My journey with Unifi started as an operations agent, but I quickly became a cabin champion traveling and learning the newest cabin cleaning processes, and meeting many people. I was then promoted to crew chief and later a supervisor where I was able to travel to DFW and meet with load planners. I held the title of performance manager for a short period before stepping into my current role as Station Manager. This is only the start of my journey because I know there are still opportunities for me to continue growing and learning.”
Naweed is a refugee, one of more than 12,000* who came to the U.S. in 2021. His job is his lifeline. His friends, family, and even his girlfriend are all thousands of miles away – in Afghanistan.
Naweed has been part of Unifi Aviation since April 2022, working as a Cabin Service Agent at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. His journey to get here – and the journey he still faces – is one of struggle, resilience, and hope. Naweed is a refugee from Afghanistan, and since joining the company he’s also brought on more than two dozen refugees to our Seattle team. “It’s not easy living as a refugee, and I can’t speak for everyone but for me – I’m happy right now because I can provide for my family,” says Naweed.
His managers say he is one of the hardest working team members who always comes to work with a positive attitude and incredible drive.
