Entrepreneurial technology executive with successful track record of building high performing teams, developing innovative ecosystem, fostering corporate innovation, identifying market opportunities, and launching disruptive ventures.
At Virgin Orbit, we are leveraging Virgin Galactic’s work building our human spaceflight program and our team’s extensive background in low-cost launch systems to create LauncherOne, an orbital launch vehicle dedicated to the small satellite market. Already, our world-class team of 300+ experienced professionals are hard at work in our Long Beach facility, helping make this system a reality. We’ve built and tested real hardware, acquired a 747-400 to serve as our dedicated carrier aircraft, and signed up both commercial and government customers to real launch contracts. With real hardware built and real results achieved, we are well on our way towards a vehicle that will meet our customers’ needs for launch reliability, availability and flexibility, at a commercial price they can afford.
