Commercial Drone Alliance welcomes new officers, Ken Stewart remains President

The Commercial Drone Alliance (CDA), an independent non-profit organisation led by key members of the commercial drone industry, announced today the appointment of a new slate of officers to lead the CDA in 2023. These industry leaders will work collectively with federal policymakers and industry stakeholders to reduce barriers and enable the expansion of the commercial uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS or drone) and advanced air mobility (AAM) industries.

The 2023 Officers of the CDA are:

  • Co-Chair Margaret Nagle, Head of Policy and Government Affairs of Wing
  • Co-Chair Brendan Groves, Vice President of Regulatory and Policy Affairs of Skydio, Inc.
  • Vice Chair Okeoma Moronu, Head of Aviation Regulatory and Legal Affairs of Zipline
  • President Ken Stewart, President and CEO of NUAIR
  • Vice President Neta Gliksman, Vice President Policy & Government Affairs of Percepto
  • Treasurer James Grimsley, Executive Director for Advanced Technology Initiatives of Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma

“There is an incredible amount of enthusiasm surrounding commercial drone technology – and for a good reason,” said Ms. Nagle. “This technology can bring a lot of benefits to communities, and CDA is playing a critical part in ensuring a regulatory and policy framework is in place to accelerate its implementation.”

CDA’s Officers serve on the Board together with CDA’s other Directors: Matt McCardle (Amazon Prime Air), Aaditya Devarakonda (Dedrone), Eric Schwartz (Florida Power & Light), Grant Jordan (Skysafe), Jeff Cole (Hidden Level), and Dean Allen Barefield (Southern Company).
