MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SpaceLink, a company that is redrawing the map of space connectivity, announced it has built out its senior executive team with four highly experienced satellite industry leaders, all with strong track records of success. The company is building a satellite relay system for secure, continuous, high-capacity data relay service between Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and the ground to meet pent up demand for fast and affordable access to the growing flood of data available from space.
Tony Colucci has been named Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer and Larry Rubin joins as Chief Operating Officer. Both were instrumental in establishing the company's vision of a service that will help advance humanity to a new age of space commerce, exploration, environmental awareness, and security. Rob Singh, formerly of Maxar Technologies, has joined as Chief Technology Officer, and David Lihani, formerly of Astrolabe Enterprises, was named General Counsel.
"I joined SpaceLink knowing that a superior executive team would be supporting me in my role as CEO," said David Bettinger, Chief Executive Officer at SpaceLink.
