Graham Peters, Managing Director of Avanti Government Solutions and the current Chair of the European Affairs Working Group, has been elected Chair-elect of UKspace, the trade association of the UK space industry.



Graham Peters (above) will take up the two-year post from April 2018, taking over from Richard Peckham, who has led UKspace since March 2017.

Additionally, Ben Olivier, CEO Thales Alenia Space (UK), has been elected as Vice-Chair UKspace for the same period. It is the custom and practice in UKspace that the Vice-Chair will then assume the role of Chair for the following two years, from April 2020 to 2022.

UKspace President, Andy Green, said: “I am delighted to welcome Graham and Ben to key leadership roles in the trade association at this vital time for the sector. I look forward to working closely with them as we continue our dialogue with ministers to secure the best possible outcome for the UK space sector and its place in a modern and forward looking national Industrial Strategy.”
