As a new Vice President at UltiSat, Richard will oversee the company’s business development organization and have primary responsibility for driving revenue growth through new customers and programs, as well as expanding presence in emerging market segments.
“UltiSat has a renewed focus on growth, with particular attention in rapidly evolving markets like airborne communications,” said David Myers, UltiSat president and CEO. “So, when looking for a new leader for our business development function, we wanted to augment the company’s expertise in satellite and wireless communications with someone who brings deep customer experience in the tactical airborne mission environment.

Prior to Lockheed Martin, Richard spent more than 28 years in the U.S. Army as a helicopter pilot, maintenance officer and planner-strategist. He is a veteran of combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq and peacekeeping operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
