Rob Peckham

Space Exploration Technologies has announced Rob Peckham has joined the company as Vice President of Business Development. In this role, Peckham's primary responsibilities include the development and expansion of SpaceX's customer base across its family of launch vehicles and Dragon spacecraft, as well as leading the sales, marketing and mission management teams.

Most recently, Rob served as President and General Manager of Sea Launch, the international launch services consortium formed by four companies: Boeing Commercial Space, Energia of Russia, SDO Yuzhnoye / PO Yuzhmash of Ukraine, and Aker Solutions of Norway.

During his nine years with Sea Launch, Peckham oversaw commercial sales in excess of one billion dollars and substantial growth of the company during its transition to a fully operational launch system.

Prior to Sea Launch, Peckham worked for Hughes Space and Communications, where he managed the company's strategic long term launch agreements, and McDonnell Douglas where he was responsible for establishing business relationships with domestic and international customers for commercial Delta launch services.

Rob has extensive experience working with global customers, partners, and manufacturers, and leading multi-cultural teams. He earned an MBA degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., and a BA degree from California State University in Chico.

Rob will report to President Gwynne Shotwell, who previously held the VP of Business Development position.

"Rob's global space business and leadership experience will be invaluable as we expand our roster of commercial launches," said Gwynne Shotwell, President of SpaceX. "We are pleased that Rob has chosen to join the SpaceX team."

The SpaceX launch manifest currently lists two dozen launches for domestic and international customers, including a dozen flights for NASA to resupply the International Space Station beginning in 2010.
