Stephanie Koster

Stephanie Koster, formerly a director and treasurer at suborbital vehicle manufacturer Blue Origin, has been named chief financial officer of space technology provider Vector.

Koster brings two decades of finance, operations and strategy management experience to her new position, Vector said Wednesday.

Prior to Blue Origin, she held a nine-year career at Boeing (NYSE: BA) and played a role in programs related to global venture capital, innovation, mergers and acquisitions, technology procurement and corporate development.

Tuczon, Arizona-based Vector raised $70M during a recent Series B funding round and said it would use the money in workforce expansion initiatives.

The company aims to conduct its initial orbital flight from the Pacific Spaceport Complex in Alaska later in the year.
