Robert Lightfoot

Robert Lightfoot, a 29-year NASA veteran and former acting administrator of the space agency, has been appointed to serve as president of LSINC.

“His forward-thinking and consensus-building leadership style brings a new dimension to how we can work with those we serve,” Alicia Ryan, LSINC CEO, said in a statement released Wednesday.

Lightfoot led the agency NASA on an acting basis from Jan. 20, 2017 to April 23, 2018 and also served as its associate administrator, the highest-ranking civil service position at the agency.

Before that, he was director at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, where he managed space transportation, propulsion and scientific efforts.

He spent two years at NASA’s Washington headquarters and helped develop strategies for returning the Space Shuttle fleet to flight.
