Maxar adds former Strategic Capabilities Office head

Maxar Technologies has added to its executive team Chris Shank, formerly director of the Defense Department’s Strategic Capabilities Office that helped steer emerging technology pursuits.

Shank will work as vice president of national security space at Maxar and help oversee sales and business development efforts as part of its global field operations team, the space technology company said Thursday.
