In Organizational Shift, MDA Creates New Government Division
MDA, a Maxar Technologies company, has appointed Chris Pogue to serve as president of the newly created MDA Government division. In addition, MDA has announced an organizational shift to better align with the market and customers’ needs.
Pogue assumes responsibility for taking MDA Government to the next level of growth and profitability and will report to Mike Greenley, the group president of MDA. Pogue will have responsibility for defense, Earth observation systems, enterprise IT, and government space robotics.
