T.I. Weintraub, a more than two-decade aerospace and defense industry veteran, has been tapped to serve as chief growth officer at cloud-based space communications technology provider Atlas Space Operations.
Weintraub joins the Michigan-headquartered company from BlueHalo, where he most recently served as director of business development for space and directed energy, Atlas said Tuesday.
Weintraub is a 20-year U.S. Army veteran and his military career included roles such as military intelligence officer, imagery intelligence officer and acquisition officer.
His appointment comes after Atlas secured $26 million in a series B funding round led by Mitsui & Co. to expand the company’s Freedom Software Platform and Ground Software as a Service approach.
