ConAgra Group Aviation Leader Honored With NBAA's Silk Scarf Award

Jim Hollenbeck a Founding Member of Nebraska Business Aviation Association

November 29, 2010

NBAA this month recognized Jim Hollenbeck, ConAgra Foods vice president of aviation, for his promotion of business aviation in the state of Nebraska throughout his career. NBAA Regional Representative Bob Quinn and Nebraska Business Aviation Association (NeBAA) President Mike Moravec were on-hand to make the presentation during a November 10 luncheon at Omaha Eppley Airport.

Having founded the ConAgra Foods Flight Department over 32 years ago, Hollenbeck has proven himself a well-respected aviation executive in the Omaha and Midwest Region. His service to both his company and the surrounding aviation community has been exemplary, founded on the principles of safety, service and efficiency. His colleagues attest that his collaborative approach to management and team development has helped to produce a premier flight department, staffed with loyal and talented aviation professionals. As a result of his dedicated service, the ConAgra Foods Air Transportation team has been and continues to be the first choice of transport for ConAgra Foods’ many business travelers. 

Over the years, Hollenbeck has reached out to business aviation stakeholders to build inclusive relationships with regional flight departments, aviation service vendors, repair facilities and ATC partners. As a founding board member of the Nebraska Business Aviation Association, he has led regional efforts to promote business aviation to the community, and to give back to the local community through NeBAA’s charitable initiatives and collegiate scholarship program.
