Gilman Louie, most recently chairman of Vricon’s board of directors, became a board member at Maxar Technologies (NYSE: MAXR) after the latter company acquired the McLean, Va.-based geospatial technology provider.
His term will expire when Maxar holds its 2021 annual stockholder meeting where he can stand for election, the space company said Wednesday.
Dan Jablonsky, CEO of Maxar, said the company aims to develop "game-changing" technology platforms for customers and create value for investors through the Vricon acquisition.
Louie is a managing partner at investment firm Alsop Louie Partners and a commissioner at the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence.
He also led In-Q-Tel, the intelligence community's venture capital arm, as president and CEO from 1999 to 2006 and served on Department of Defense advisory boards.
His industry career also includes time at Niantic, Hasbro, Spectrum HoloByte, Nexa and Sphere.
