“I have had the good fortune to work with Eugene Hoeven when he was with CANSO and the air traffic management (ATM) industry was grappling with what to do about the looming cyber threats and risks. Eugene quickly assembled a team of industry players to establish CANSO’s ATM Security Workgroup (ASWG) and within 6 months published the CANSO Cyber Security Risk Assessment Guide, which was well-received and highly praised as a resource for organizations on the practical steps they should take to develop resiliency in cyber security. Throughout the process, Eugene exhibited vision and leadership that resulted in the successful delivery of the project.”

“SADC has retained the services of EH&A for our business development activities in Canada to help grow the aerospace, MRO and logistics cluster for the Amsterdam Airport Area. Throughout this process, Eugene Hoeven has shown to be very responsive and supportive of our efforts – a natural connector and facilitator – that has resulted in a number of new relationships and leads for direct investment in the Netherlands.”

“I’ve known Eugene Hoeven from when NAV CANADA was created in 1996, and he represented the airline industry in the establishment of the service charges regime as the sole source of funding for the company. His leadership in bringing together the user community to focus on cost effective services and flight efficiencies helped lay the foundation for NAV CANADA to become one of the world’s most respected air navigation services providers. I was therefore only too happy to see Eugene move on to CANSO to represent the air navigation services industry at ICAO, where he continuously enhanced its reputation and influence in the international aviation community.”
