Written by: leah_seraphim

Portfolio company Astroscale announced that Nick Shave will succeed John Auburn as Managing Director of Astroscale Ltd.

John concludes his role at Astroscale Ltd. after driving immense growth over the last five years, with Astroscale becoming the largest company at Harwell Science and Innovation Campus with over 120 employees, and securing more than $30 million in funding.

Nick, formerly VP of Strategic Programmes at Inmarsat, and current Chair of UKspace brings more than 30 years of space sector experience to Astroscale and joins at an exciting time as ELSA-M starts development. Nick is joining Astroscale at a time of tremendous growth in the U.K. following the recent announcement of ESA’s Sunrise Partnership Program to develop Astroscale’s ELSA-M servicer and debris removal mission and ESA’s CREAM II Collision Avoidance Program.

We wish John all the best in his future endeavours and look forward to working alongside Nick at this exciting time for Astroscale as they continue on their mission building a sustainable space economy.
