ICEYE Names Andy Read as Global Government Solutions Head

Andy Read, former executive officer at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has been named global head of government solutions at synthetic aperture radar satellite operator ICEYE.

He brings to the role over 10 years of experience in natural catastrophe resilience, public policy and reinsurance as he oversees the company’s efforts to deliver actionable data on natural disasters to public sector organizations, ICEYE said Thursday.

Read will work with government agencies and officials to help improve their disaster response and recovery capabilities using platforms and data collected by the company’s SAR satellites.

“Andy has extensive experience leading government programs focused on natural catastrophe resilience and working with private sector risk carriers to support their mission – both are critical areas for us, where demand for solutions is growing daily,” said Charles Blanchet, vice president of solutions at ICEYE.

Prior to ICEYE, Read served as a VP within the public sector practice at reinsurance company Guy Carpenter.

He served as a principal adviser to the deputy associate administrator for insurance and mitigation during his time as an executive officer at FEMA’s federal insurance and mitigation administration.
