He has helped the company raise $87M through a recent Series C funding round and will be responsible for driving its expansion in the U.S., Iceye said Thursday.

Welsh noted the subsidiary plans to build up teams across the East and West coasts as well as establish a satellite operations center and manufacturing facilities.
