My professional background:
I believe in making a difference through the application of technology for the betterment and enhancement of mankind; and I believe passionately that everything we do must have a purpose and contribute to the goal of making the world a better place.
During my career working at Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) I held various project, engineering and senior leadership roles. I was involved in many industry firsts, missions providing communications, Earth observation, technology demonstration and programmes enabling new space faring nations.
I was responsible for the growth of the Communications and Navigation business, and leading the development of capability beyond Low Earth Orbit. I stimulated and delivered the company's involvement in GALILEO, was instrumental in developing SSTL's Geosynchronous Satellite, and was a champion for the development of an entry-level cubesat.
I was responsible for establishing and leading, as Chief Executive Officer, Surrey Satelite Technology US, a US satellite engineering subsidiary of SSTL that secured and delivered a number of missions.
I started my own group of specialised companies, which includes KISPE, KISPE Space and Applied Space Solutions to allow me, with my growing team of like-minded colleagues, to continue to pursue my vision to accelerate the development and introduction of satellite solutions.
In addition I am the Commercial Director for Spaceport Cornwall, with KISPE performing the Project Delivery Partner role; and until Swedish regulations changed in Summer 2021, I was a Member of the Board of Directors for Swedish Space Corporation.
I have a PhD in Electronics and a Bachelor's degree in Electronic Engineering, both from the University of Surrey.
How I contribute to the KISPE customer experience
I have 30 years of space systems engineering, project and business management experience, with a proven track record in developing and delivering complex programmes throughout the value chain of the space ecosystem and adjacent sectors.
