Australian-listed space technology operator Kleos Space has appointed seasoned industry executive Eric von Eckartsberg as Chief Revenue Officer as it prepares for commercialisation of its global activity-based intelligence data.

Kleos also announced expansion its sales team with the appointment of Product Manager Guillermo Gutierrez and Sales Executive Alex Johnson, both based in the US.

Kleos says von Eckartsberg has deep industry expertise including senior leadership roles at satellite imagery company and geospatial services providers Maxar Corporation and Vricon Inc, network security analytics platform RedSeal Networks, and advanced AI and text analytics software company Basis Technology.

He also served as a US Government Intelligence Officer for more than a decade.

Guillermo Gutierrez brings more than 20 years’ experience in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), image and LiDAR processing, 3D modelling and geospatial data to Kleos, and Alex Johnson is an experienced business development and sales executive, previously responsible for the sale of satellite imagery, software and geospatial data to global companies for Maxar Technologies.

These latest appointments follow the recent appointment of Heribert Krämer as COO, and establishment of Kleos’ US Engineering Office in Denver last month.

“While we commission our first satellite cluster and continue to progress our second satellite cluster, our immediate focus is on growing our customer base. Eric’s appointment, supported by a larger global business development and sales team, will allow us to significantly increase commercialisation activities,” says CEO Andy Bowyer.

“Eric’s experience in high growth companies will be invaluable as we achieve and then grow our revenue, providing governments and commercial entities with RF geolocation intelligence over key regions of maritime interest, including the Strait of Hormuz, South China Sea and East and West African coasts.

“I am also proud to bring in Guillermo as our Product Manager and Alex as Sales Executive. Guillermo has a great industry reputation with extensive experience growing similar products to ours and Alex capabilities to support our new and existing customers and Channel Partner base make them fantastic additions to the team.”
