Space link announced that Wendy newman joined as vice president of marketing and communications. Newman, formerly Wendy Lewis, has a long history of raising awareness and raising the profile of companies in the space and satellite industry.
Wendy is a marketing and communications professional with 15 years of experience in satellites and space. Prior to joining SpaceLink, she provided marketing and communications services to SpaceLink and other technology companies as a director of Strategic Voice, a public relations company she founded in 2019. Prior to that, she was Senior Director of Communications at SSL, now a business unit of Maxar, where she worked for 12 years. She also led corporate communications and investor relations for Loral Space & Communications.
SpaceLink provides secure, continuous, high-capacity connectivity to orbiting spacecraft with a constellation of medium earth orbit (MEO) relay satellites that use both RF and optical inter-satellite links for real-time tasks and access to the enormous flow of information that satellite operators need to provide their customers with the intelligence to make decisions in a fraction of a second.
With SpaceLink, LEO satellite operators benefit from low latency, always on access to data, visitors to commercial space stations benefit from continuous communication capability, and satellite repairers or tugs receive maneuvering instructions at all times, because one of the SpaceLink satellites is always visible. SpaceLink responds to the pent-up demand for fast and affordable access to the growing flow of data available from space.
“After supporting the SpaceLink effort from the start as a consultant with Strategic Voice, we are excited and gratified that Wendy has committed to joining the team full-time,” said Tony Colucci, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer at SpaceLink. “As we continue to attract partners, customers and investors, Wendy’s work is helping to build awareness of our reputation as a transformational company that makes satellite data available in real-time.”
