As the founder and managing partner of Rosales Business Partners with over two decades of experience, Ms. Rosales is dedicated to serving public sector clients in the airport and transportation industries as a consultant as well as an attorney – and has from the very beginning.

Her airport industry experience started with the City and County of San Francisco, where she served as a San Francisco Airport (SFO) senior staff member for over 11 years, holding high level positions as General Counsel and Airport Deputy Director for Legislative & Regulatory Affairs.

Over the years, she’s been commended by institutional clients for enabling their needs with “big picture” strategic and creative thinking and the development of forward-thinking policy initiatives. Whether it’s an effective community outreach project aimed at maximizing local/minority business participation in multi-million dollar airport construction or helping secure concession contracts, Ms. Rosales’ expertise and acumen is second-to-none.

Shortly after launching the organization in 2010, Ms. Rosales saw new avenues to serve the public sector by developing entrepreneurial public-private partnerships with the use of innovative technologies. In the fall of 2010 she collaborated with her partners and began a project known as FastAirBuy (FAB) that seeks to introduce cutting-edge mobile technology features in the airport environment and other controlled commercial spaces. Ms. Rosales is a member of Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) and the Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) and is a regular speaker at airport and airline focused conferences. She is fluent in Spanish.
