CGI’s Vice President of Navigation Services has been elected at the Vice Chair of UKspace. UKspace is the UK space trade association which represents the UK space industry to government and other key stakeholders nationally and internationally.

John Hanley said: “It is an honour to be elected to the role of Vice Chair of UKspace by so many of my colleagues in the Space industry. I truly believe the next few years are pivotal for all of us, both large and small, in this sector with the emphasis being fully on accelerating partnerships across industry, across government and across adjacent markets. I look forward to getting started and trust I am capable of helping the team to represent all voices from the UKspace membership with clarity and integrity.”

John brings experience of leading a business unit which encompasses both upstream and downstream customers so has a strong appreciation of the challenges facing companies across the whole of UK space industry. This insight will help to ensure UKspace is delivering for the entirety of its membership as the UK develops and exploits its own end-to-end space services in both the civil and military domains.
