Since 2008 HE Space has been supported by a Board of Advisors. The purpose of the Board of Advisors is to provide business advice to the Shareholder and CEO, Scott Millican, which is in the best interests of the company.
The Board of Advisors members bring together a broad collective capability from senior level management experience and knowledge within the European space sector to extensive corporate financial experience with companies of our size and business models. All members are currently engaged and active in their field of expertise. The Board meets twice a year in March and September.
