Roei Ganzarski
magniX, an electric aviation propulsion company
With a vision of connecting communities with low-cost, clean air transportation, magniX is disrupting the status-quo of aviation as we know it.
Prior to magniX, Roei was CEO of BoldIQ - a global provider of dynamic real-time scheduling optimization software. Under Roei’s leadership, BoldIQ grew from a seed software startup to a multi-million dollar profitable SaaS company with customers worldwide and across industries.
Before BoldIQ, Roei was with the Boeing family of companies in continuously increasing roles of responsibility. His last role at Boeing was Chief Customer Officer for Boeing’s Flight Services division where he led all worldwide customer and market facing organizations and was responsible for revenue growth and customer service.

Other experiences prior to Boeing include private investment banking, corporate finance, advertising, and the military.

He is a graduate of Wharton’s Advanced Management Program, earned an MBA from the University of Washington, and a BA in Economics from The University of Haifa.
Roei is also the chairman of Eviation the electric aircraft OEM and sits on the board of the Washington Technology Industry Association. Roei lives with his family in Redmond, Washington, USA.

Mark Moore
Director of Elevate Strategy
Mark D. Moore worked for NASA for over 32 years before joining Uber, the entire time focusing on conceptual design studies of advanced aircraft concepts. He received his Master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Stanford University and is currently completing his PhD at Georgia Tech. His research focused on understanding how to best integrate the emerging technology area of electric propulsion and automation to achieve breakthrough on-demand aviation capabilities. He has authored many technical publications promoting a future vision of emerging distributed aviation markets, with his recent papers highlighting the disruptive technology capabilities of electric propulsion to fundamentally alter current General Aviation capabilities. His research efforts include advanced concepts relating to On-Demand Mobility, Personal Air Vehicles, Aerial Robotics, Atmospheric Satellites, and Airborne Wind Turbines. He left NASA to transform electric VTOL from research into development reality as a principal contributor in the Uber Elevate ecosystem initiative.

Chris Eoyang
VP, Business Development & Global Projects
(aka BOOM Technology, BOOM Supersonic)
Before venturing into aerospace, Christopher was a partner managing director and Chief Emerging Markets Strategist at Goldman Sachs, based in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore. His 24-year career at GS included roles as head of Equity Derivatives Research, Asian E-Commerce, Electronic Trading, and Asia-Pacific Portfolio Strategy. After Christopher's seed round investment in 2016, CEO Blake Scholl invited him to kickstart Boom's global sales effort, resulting in a Japan Airlines investment and partnership in 2017 and deepening relationships with the world's major airlines. Given his background, Christopher also works with the Finance team on international fund-raising and is the liaison for the investment banks.

Dale Tutt
Vice President of Aerospace and Defense Industry
Siemens Digital Industries Software
Dale Tutt is the Vice President of Aerospace and Defense Industry, for Siemens Digital Industries Software. He is responsible for defining overall the overall Aerospace and Defense industry strategy for Siemens Digital Industries Software, driving specific industry requirements into software products and solutions, and leading the definition of industry specific market solutions for Aerospace and Defense customers.

Dale has over 30 years of experience in engineering design, development, and program leadership within the Aerospace industry. Prior to joining Siemens, Dale worked at The Spaceship Company, a sister company to Virgin Galactic, as the VP of Engineering and VP of Program Management, where he led the development and flight test of vehicles for commercial space tourism. While at The Spaceship Company he led the team on a successful flight test to space in December 2018.
Prior to working at The Spaceship Company, Dale spent 18 years at Cessna Aircraft / Textron Aviation in program and project management, systems engineering and integration, advanced design, autopilot integration, simulation development and other engineering roles. In one of his most recent roles at Cessna, he was the Chief Engineer and Program Director of the Scorpion Jet program, where he led a dynamic cross-functional engineering, supply chain, and manufacturing team to design, build and fly the Scorpion Jet prototype from design concept to first flight in 23 months – an approximate 50% reduction in cost and schedule compared to similar programs. Before leaving Textron Aviation, he was the Engineering Director for the Textron Aviation Defense programs, leading the engineering teams for the Scorpion jet, T-6 Texan II trainer, and AT-6 light attack aircraft.

Before joining Cessna, Dale worked as an engineer at Bombardier, Learjet, on the Lear 45 program, and General Dynamics Space System Division on the Atlas I, II and IIAS programs.
Dale has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and an MBA from Wichita State University with a concentration in Finance.
