Emily Deaton landed a career in business aviation purely by chance when a former colleague suggested she throw her hat in the ring for a gig at the new company in town –  Embraer Executive Jets. She quickly fell in love with this industry and there was no going back. She now has the pleasure of leading the jetAVIVA team as Chief Executive Officer. 

“I am fortunate to be in a position to leave a legacy of leadership, to not only inspire people to join this industry, but to create work cultures and opportunities where they can be successful, thrive and become future leaders,” Deaton said. “I am inspired by surrounding myself with great talent – those that seek change and desire to bring out the best in others.”
