[Via Satellite 09-22-2014] Martin Gee, former CEO of Thales Alenia Space U.K., has stepped down from his executive position. Taking the helm is Ben Oliver, former director of Systems Engineering and Assessment Limited’s (SEA) space division.
Olivier has held previous roles at British Aerospace (BAe) and Matra Marconi Space. He also served as deputy chairman of the U.K. National Space Technology Steering Group, a board member of the Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation, and a member of the U.K. Industrial Space Committee.
Gee will continue to work with Thales Alenia Space U.K on existing projects as well as building relationships within the United Kingdom.

Thales Alenia Space U.K. is also spearheading a new small geostationary platform in which the SEA acquisition plays a critical part.
