ILS hires new president
Posted: Sat, Mar 14, 2020, 8:21 AM ET (1221 GMT)
International Launch Services has hired a longtime United Launch Alliance executive as its new president. Tiphaine Louradour spent 13 years at ULA, most recently as head of global commercial sales, before joining ILS this week as its new president. ILS had been without a full-time president since the departure last October of Kirk Pysher. ILS also announced it had received approval from the U.S. State Department to market the Soyuz rocket, working in cooperation with GK Launch Services. That agreement, ILS said, could extend to selling seats on crewed Soyuz spacecraft, although details about both Soyuz launches and spacecraft have yet to be worked out.
