So is SXC! This month we will be opening two new offices in New York and Hong Kong. That way we will be able to fulfill the specific needs for our customers from Asia and the Americas.
With the expansion of our organisation, I felt SXC could really benefit from a CEO that is a star in organising and optimizing a rapidly growing corporation like ours. We are all so proud our #1 candidate Georgette Schlick accepted our offer and joined our team. Together with her we will be working towards the end of our countdown: the first rocket powered test flights before the end of the year. Glad to have you all aboard!
May the force be with you.
— Michiel Mol//CEO
Three New Shooting Stars Discovered
Within our core SXC team anyway. May we proudly introduce them to you.
Georgette Schlick is the SXC Group’s newly appointed CEO.Georgette comes with impressive international management experience at corporations like Sanoma/SBS Broadcasting and Brunel.
Georgette: “The idea of leading a commercial space agency was quite a new idea to me, but after my first talk with Michiel my mind was made up. The company holds so much energy, so much passion. Realizing we are in the process of making history, both us and our customers, makes this the best job in the world.”
Rogier Kroymans is SXC’s new Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). As of the 1st of July 2013, he will be responsible for the overall sales strategy. Besides that, he will be in charge of all sales activities besides US/Canada and Greater China.
Rogier: “I spent a great deal of my career marketing either high-end luxury goods and sustainable innovations; now I am excited that I can do both at the same time! SXC’s customers are frontrunners, a reason why it will be a joy to be able to work with them.”
Alex Tang will be leading the Asian commercial department as CEO SXC Asia.
Alex: ”Russia and the USA competed with each other in the conquest of space in the late sixties. At that time, Asia was not an economic superpower, but things have changed. Nowadays, Asia is packed with highly educated and motivated people that have the means for Asia to play an important role in this exciting new phase in astronautics.”
Opening SXC in the USA
It has been a very exciting two years since we launched commercially in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in April 2011. Two years onwards it is time to spread our wings and fly over to the USA, to stay there permanently. We have noticed that we were able to serve a lot of space fanatics from our office in The Netherlands. However, due to the time difference between Europe and the USA we were not able to provide our very best service to our US fans at all times. This why we have opened up our office in the USA this month, June 2013.
Nathalie Streng,who has been with us from the very beginning, will take on this adventure and will lead the US Operations. Our space office is located in New York City and from there we will be visiting numerous states on a monthly basis. Space Expedition Corporation is looking for very well connected space agents, commercial partners and new US Astronauts, that will follow the path where so few have gone before.
SXC Asia Launch Set
The launch of SXC Asia will take place Monday, July 8, in Hong Kong.
