Sally Flaxman

Contract Manager

I grew up on the east coast and loved tagging along with my father to his office in downtown Manhattan. The hustle and bustle of the city was always so exciting to me and I fed off the energy of the city that never sleeps. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I knew I wanted to do it in this city. And that’s just what I did. After earning a B.A. in business management, I started my career in NYC and accidentally landed in a job within the aerospace division of a lending and leasing company. This wasn’t necessarily the path I was anticipating, but I was up for a challenge and was excited by an industry filled with people who were passionate about what they did.

During my tenure in the aerospace industry, I worked in their legal department while earning my paralegal certificate at night from NYU University. I then moved to Dublin, Ireland for two years to help open and run our new office overseas. I learned a lot about the business, but I learned even more about working with people from all different cultures and backgrounds. I eventually returned to NY to take over the responsibilities of contract and new aircraft delivery manager. I met my husband on a business trip to Seattle somewhere along the way and convinced my company to allow me to relocate myself and my position to the Emerald City.  We got married and are happily raising our two young daughters as coffee loving Seattleites.

After 14 years in aerospace, it was time for something new. Something and somewhere that I could use the skills I had learned over the years as a paralegal and contract manager, and in a place that embodies the type of environment I thrive in –an energetic and exciting industry with people and clients who are really passionate about what they do. And I have found all that and more in Xinova.
