Brad Schneider, former executive vice president of USA operations at Rocket Lab USA, has joined Firefly Aerospace to serve as chief revenue officer. He brings 35 years of leadership experience to the role, having focused on small satellite and launch vehicle programs over the last 20 years, Firefly said Wednesday.
Schneider oversaw business activities related to operational and launch efforts during his time with Rocket Lab USA. He also held a variety of executive-level roles such at multiple aerospace and defense firms, including Lockheed Martin and Raytheon.
Tom Markusic, CEO at Firefly Aerospace, said Schneider's expertise will support customer experience as the company transitions from vehicle development to launch preparation of the Alpha launch vehicle.
