BlackSky Hires 3 Execs for General Counsel, Chief Finance & Development Roles

BlackSky Holdings has appointed three executives to take up two C-level positions and the general counsel role following the completion of the geospatial intelligence company’s merger with Osprey Technology Acquisition.

Johan Broekhuysen, formerly chief financial officer at Segra, will fill the same role at BlackSky while Brian Daum, the current CFO, will remain as a senior adviser to support the transition, the company said Wednesday.

Broekhuysen, who will additionally serve as a senior adviser at BlackSky, founded and served as principal of Open Water Advisory Group, which advised on capital related to telecommunications infrastructure. Previously, he spearheaded business growth at Segra where he stayed for nearly seven years.

BlackSky also appointed Henry Dubois to serve as chief development officer, responsible for overseeing corporate growth efforts, including merger and acquisition activities. His career includes work as CFO at both GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, where he also served as president and chief operating officer.

Chris Lin, who was the general counsel of Rakuten Advertising, has been tapped to assume the same role at BlackSky. She holds almost 20 years of legal and business experience. At Rakuten, Lin also served as chief privacy and administrative officer.

Brian O’Toole, CEO of BlackSky, said the three appointees bring experience and expertise from high-growth technology organizations and public companies.
