Greg Young, chief operating officer of LinQuest since November 2019, has taken the helm as the company’s president and CEO.
He succeeds Timothy Dills, who has retired after nearly four years in the dual role, the space systems development and integration services provider said Wednesday.
“I am thrilled to carry on LinQuest’s legacy of customer-focused innovation as we build and strengthen new and existing customer relationships in critical segments of the dynamic and growing national security space market and beyond,” Young noted.
The newly promoted executive’s priorities include driving technology investments and business opportunities in the national security space market.
In his previous role, Young oversaw product development efforts at LinQuest in digital engineering and simulation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, mission planning and autonomous operations.
He also led the establishment of LinQlab, which integrates commercial and government-owned equipment for independent verification and validation.
Young served as a career space operations officer at the U.S. Air Force for more than two decades.
