      About the Keynotes

      Timothy Hoven has more than 30 years of experience working in Wisconsin government and politics, including eight years as a member of the State Assembly. Prior to his election to the Legislature, Tim served as an Ozaukee County Board supervisor and worked as a senior capitol aide in the Wisconsin Senate.

      As a legislator, Tim focused his efforts on business-related issues including utility, banking and construction legislation. As Chairman of the Assembly Energy & Utilities Committee, he helped pass a series of groundbreaking energy bills into law to modernize the state’s antiquated electric utility industry for the 21st Century.

      After leaving the Legislature in 2002, Tim founded Hoven Consulting to provide clients with a wide-array of government affairs services. Since its formation, Hoven Consulting has had strong growth based on legislative success and client satisfaction. Tim holds a B.S. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

      Erik Kanter joined Hoven Consulting in 2016 as a Government Affairs and Communications Associate. He has been active in Wisconsin politics for years. He previously served as a senior legislative adviser for State Representative John Murtha during his time as Assembly Majority Caucus Chair. Erik worked on a diverse range of policy initiatives and was also a member of the Assembly Majority communications team.

      Prior to working for Representative Murtha, Erik was a legislative aide and a Congressional intern. Erik’s keen knowledge of the legislative process and experience in crafting targeted communication are important in Hoven Consulting successfully serving its clients. Erik graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science.
