Former Airbus Defense & Space CEO Dirk Hoke Appointed to Spire Global Board

Dirk Hoke, formerly the CEO of Airbus’ defense and space business, has joined the board of directors of Spire Global (NYSE: SPIR).

The 25-year industry veteran will aim to help Spire’s leadership team in efforts to bring satellite-powered data offerings to the government and commercial sectors, the company said Tuesday.

“I’m looking forward to working with the company’s management team to expand Spire’s reach across industry and geography, identifying new use cases for the company’s space-based data solutions,” Hoke noted.
