He holds more than 30 years of experience in business operations, space and military systems, engineering and legislative affairs and will lead York Space Systems’ corporate strategy and growth efforts in his new position, the company said Monday.
“I look forward to working with the York Space Systems leadership team to help drive continued growth and innovation within the company and among its enterprise partners throughout the entire space and technology sector,” Beames said.
