Bakhos Hanna

Joined the Department of Communications as a Radio Inspector in 1981

Lead instructor in the National Designated Instructor (NDI) program

Retired from Industry Canada Spectrum Management in 2012

 
 

 

September 11, 2012

 

Good afternoon, all.

 

It is with mixed emotions that I must announce the retirement of our friend and colleague, Mr. Bakhos Hanna.

 

Bakhos began his career for the former Department of Communications in Kitchener in 1981 as an EL recruit, moving to Hamilton in 1985 and then to London in 1988, where he has established himself as a pillar of the London District Office, and later the greater Central and Western Ontario District Office.

 

I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Bakhos - he has always been available to help a fellow colleague, and has provided training for a host of Spectrum Management staff over the years, whether through on-the-job training, or as a lead instructor in the Department's National Designated Instructor (NDI) program.  His ability to deal with difficult situations is unrivalled.

 

Bakhos' hard work, commitment to spectrum management, and residential construction tips will be sorely missed in our office.

 

A retirement luncheon date has not yet been set, but one will be provided in the near future.  In the meantime, please join me in congratulating Bakhos on his career, and on wishing him well for his upcoming retirement.

Good afternoon, everyone.

 

After a long and distinguished career of almost 31 years, Mr. Bakhos Hanna has announced that he will be retiring from Industry Canada's Central and Western Ontario District Office.  Bakhos' last day in the office will be October 31, 2012.

 

Bakhos began his career for the former Department of Communications in Kitchener in 1981 as an EL recruit, moving to Hamilton in 1985 and then to London in 1988, where he has established himself as a pillar of the then London District Office, and later the greater Central and Western Ontario District Office.

 

Bakhos has always been available to help a fellow colleague, and has provided training for a host of Spectrum Management staff over the years, whether through on-the-job training, or as a lead instructor in the Department's National Designated Instructor (NDI) program.  His ability to deal with difficult situations is unrivalled and his hard work and commitment to spectrum management will be sorely missed.

 

You are cordially invited to Bakhos' retirement luncheon, which is scheduled for October 24, 2012.

 

I apologize if I have missed anyone from the e-mail, so feel free to forward this message to those who know Bakhos and would like to help in the celebration of his retirement.

 

Regards,

 

Lou Battiston
A/Director
Central and Western Ontario District Office

My dearest colleagues and friends,


I want to thank you for your continued support in these past 31 years of employment with Industry Canada.

 

Your best wishes and generosity is heartfelt. I leave work today, my last day with the comfort of leaving behind fine people serving the government. It has been a sincere pleasure and honour to have worked with you.

 

I hope that we continue to cross paths (Maybe I’ll bring you a shawarma every now and then!) and I wish you all peace, good health and happiness always!

 

Best regards
 

Bakhos Hanna
