World View has appointed former SSL Chief Technology Officer and Vice President Matteo Genna to lead engineering and manufacturing at the company. Genna will provide executive leadership and direction in shaping World View’s future in pursuit of the company’s mission to pioneer a new economy in the stratosphere.

Genna will be responsible for leading the continued technical progress and development of all flight services and vehicles, including World View’s hallmark Stratollite platform, a balloon-borne vehicle analogous to a satellite that operates over customer-specified areas of interest for long duration missions.

“World View has established itself as an innovation leader in stratospheric platforms to meet a wide range of mission applications. I am excited to be part of the World View team and play an active role in maturing the product line and growing the business,” said Genna on his appointment.
