BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 21, 2019
Satellogic, the world’s first vertically integrated geospatial analytics company, today announced the appointment of Rick Dunn as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. Dunn brings over 25 years of financial leadership to Satellogic, including executive roles in both public and private companies as well as over 10 years in public accounting. Most recently, Dunn served as CFO of PowerTeam Services, helping facilitate their acquisition by private equity owners in September 2018.
At Satellogic, Dunn will oversee the finance organization that will manage the company’s capital structure and ensure backoffice scalability as the company moves firmly into its commercial phase of growth, supporting customers and driving profitability. He has an established record of supporting high-growth technology companies, having served as the CFO of Trilogy International Partners (a wireless carrier) and Corporate Controller for Western Wireless International (Trilogy’s public company predecessor), as well as CFO for ACN, Inc. (a wireless MVNO and essential services company).
Dunn joins Satellogic following their recent announcement of an Earth Observation Satellite Constellation that will remap the planet at one meter of resolution every week and dramatically reduce the cost of high-frequency geospatial analytics.
“With their Dedicated Satellite Constellations, Satellogic is truly democratizing access to geospatial analytics. With their affordable, end-to-end solutions optimizing both frequency and resolution, we are going massively broaden the geoanalytics market, bringing it to businesses and verticals that have until now remained on the sidelines,” said Dunn. “Satellogic has assembled a world class team of leaders and subject matter experts. I’m thrilled to join this team as we bring geospatial insights to the commercial and government enterprises to help solve the world’s biggest challenges.”
Since launching in 2010, Satellogic has raised $80M in funding and launched eight spacecraft into orbit. They serve a variety of industries, including agriculture, forestry, energy, and finance and insurance.
“Rick’s deep experience in ensuring emerging, high-value industries reach their full potential is expertise that will help guide the future of Satellogic as we rapidly grow,” said Satellogic Founder and CEO Emiliano Kargieman. “We were impressed by his work leading the globalization and democratization of wireless, and we believe he will be just as impactful at Satellogic as we expand and serve the growing geospatial analytics market. It’s an honor to have him join the team.”
Satellogic’s headquarters and R&D facility is located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their satellite Assembly, Integration and Test (AIT) facility is located in Montevideo, Uruguay. Other divisions include a data-technology center in Barcelona, Spain; a product-development center in Tel Aviv, Israel; and business development centers in Miami, USA, and Beijing, China.
