Josh is the Vice President of Business Development at Relativity Space, leading all the company’s business development and customer mission management efforts. Disrupting 60 years of aerospace manufacturing, Relativity is a vertically integrated technology platform that fuses 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and autonomous robotics, to design, print and fly entirely 3D-printed rockets with 100x fewer parts in less than 60 days.
As an experienced aerospace business leader, Josh has a proven track record of shaping long-term strategies that deliver company revenue growth while also shaping how customers purchase existing services and novel capabilities. Under Josh's leadership, Relativity’s first rocket, Terran 1 has become the most pre-sold rocket in history, with multiple contracts from both private and government entities, including a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contract, a Venture Class Launch Services Demonstration 2 contract with NASA as well as on-demand satellite launch contracts with Iridium, Telesat, among others.
Prior to joining Relativity, Josh spent nine years at SpaceX where he was the Senior Director of Government Business Development, securing $3B+ in government and commercial contracts, including SpaceX’s first U.S. Air Force EELV launch services contract, an Other Transaction Authority agreement to develop a new boost stage engine, and the first operational Falcon Heavy mission.
