2 July 2019 – UKspace is delighted to announce that Nick Shave has been appointed as the organisation’s new Vice Chair. Nick, who is also VP, Strategy & Programmes at Inmarsat, takes up his new UKspace role on 3 July 2019.
UKspace Chair, Graham Peters, said: “I would like to thank Ben Olivier, our retiring Vice Chair, for his support to the membership over the past year. His advice and input – especially for the Space Growth Partnership – have been invaluable as we face one of busiest times in our history. Ben’s ability to question and probe the core of issues facing the association was a great asset. We wish him all the very best in his next adventure and thank him for his dedication to the UK space sector.”
Graham added: “I would also like to welcome Nick to his new role with UKspace, as we continue the efforts invested in achieving the National Space Programme, the announcement of the new National Space Council and the ongoing work on ESA CMIN19 negotiations. There is plenty happening.”
Nick said: “I’m very pleased and honoured to have been appointed to the UKspace Vice Chair role. I look forward to working closely with Graham as Chair and with colleagues across all companies in the sector to continue the growth trajectory of our industry. Within the context of the recently announced National Space Council, and by working together in partnership, Government and industry have a great opportunity to capitalise on the rapidly growing global space sector to achieve our UK market leadership objectives by 2030.”
