About Me

Hovester-56-Edit.jpg

I am Chris, a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience specializing in Aerospace and Defence, along with a robust background in International Business Strategy. My career spans roles in B2B and B2G bids and proposals, software engineering, technology solutions, R&D, and Product Management, primarily focused on regulated procurement markets.

 

I hold an MBA from HEC Montreal and a Mechanical Engineering degree from McGill University. My expertise is further enhanced by a Public Sector Procurement Expert certification and a Yellow Belt in Six Sigma. I am also trilingual, fluent in English, French, and Arabic, which positions me uniquely in international markets.

Why Me

My journey has taken me through demanding environments where my skills in driving tangible results have been consistently proven. I have successfully secured multiple defense contracts valued at over $100 million each, underlining my resourcefulness and result-oriented approach. My commitment to delivering exceptional customer value and business growth is unwavering, backed by a solid track record of successes.

What sets me apart is my holistic and systematic approach to problem-solving. I firmly believe that the questions we ask shape the problems we solve. My first question is always, 'What problem are we trying to solve?' I have been described as 'someone who leads with clarity and confidence, making the most intricate projects seem simple.'

Personal

In my free time, you'll find me engaging with nature and sports: cycling in the summer, hiking during fall, and skiing in the winter. However, my favorite pastime is spending quality time with my children, whether it’s watching movies, playing soccer, or cheering on my daughter at her volleyball matches.
