Norm Matheis Joins Mid-Canada Mod Center
Norm Matheis joins Mid-Canada Mod Center (MC2) to take on a business development role with the company. An avionics industry veteran, his focus is helping commercial, government and special-mission aircraft operators future-proof their operations, enhance safety and achieve operational efficiencies through emerging avionics technologies.
“The MC2 team and I are extremely pleased to have Norm take on this new business development role,” says Bill Arsenault, president of Mid-Canada Mod Center. “There aren’t many in Canada with the talent, breadth of experience and skills he has honed over his long and successful career. Norm’s deep technical insight, coupled with sales and marketing acumen are sure to provide significant benefits to our clients and MC.”
Before retiring in 2018, Matheis worked with Universal Avionics, an Elbit Systems company, for more than ten years in senior sales roles with responsibility for the Canada region as well as dealer and OEM network. Since the beginning of 2019 he has been consulting on avionics and special-mission aircraft and contributed to the aviation media. A graduate of the Centennial College avionics maintenance specialist program, Matheis is also a licensed AME-E. Prior to Universal Avionics, Matheis held technical support, management and sales roles at aircraft modifiers and an airframe OEM.
“I get a lot of satisfaction from taking complex requirements, developing possible solutions, and presenting them so it’s clear to the client how their challenge may be solved,” Matheis says. “I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with Bill and the MC2 team. We have collaborated on many successful solutions for clients over the years, and experience demonstrates that, while I’ll be concentrating on specific market segments, owners and operators of virtually any aircraft type can put their trust in Mid-Canada.”
