Redwire Hires Ex-Maxar Al Tadros as Chief Growth Officer
Redwire revealed Tuesday the hiring of Al Tadros as chief growth officer and Executive Vice President (EVP) of space infrastructure. Tadros joins Redwire from Maxar, where he served as Vice President (VP) of space infrastructure and civil space. As an expert in on-orbit servicing, assembly, and manufacturing, Tadros will advance development, increase adoption, and build momentum for Redwire’s mission-enabling capabilities within civil, defense and commercial space sectors. He will report to Redwire Chief Operating Officer Andrew Rush.
Redwire, a portfolio company of the private equity firm AE Industrial Partners, was created in June through the combination of two AEI portfolio companies acquired earlier this year, Adcole Space and Deep Space Systems. Redwire acquired Made In Space (MIS) in June.
“Al is a respected aerospace thought leader and executive with a proven track record in maturing satellite and space systems programs for exploration and commercial benefits while also driving revenue growth,” said Andrew Rush, COO of Redwire. “By integrating civil space and national security interests, prioritizing our customer’s mission objectives, and advancing our cutting-edge technologies, Al’s leadership will position the company as a global leader in space infrastructure solutions.”
