As of May 31, Beyond Gravity will be joined by Justin Elliott as Vice President of its Launchers Alabama Business Unit. In his previous role in Tallassee (Alabama) Justin successfully led and directed all strategic operational activities for one of GKN's largest technical communities during a crucial period of transformation, resulting in significant performance improvements. His extensive experience in managing complex manufacturing operations will play a critical role in driving the next phase of Beyond Gravity's transformation and the growth of its US business.
Paul Horstink, Executive Vice President of Beyond Gravity’s Launchers Division, says, "Justin's background and expertise make him the ideal candidate to strengthen our launchers division and support the development of our Alabama business unit to continue to provide quality to our esteemed customers. His down-to-earth approach, hands-on leadership style, and ability to foster strong relationships will undoubtedly contribute to the success of our team."
Rick Sanford, who joined Beyond Gravity in March 2022 for global business development and has assumed responsibility for the business unit ever since, has played a crucial role in driving the company’s growth. He has been instrumental in the successful completion of the first transformation phase. Rick will resume his primary role and focus on business development and strategic growth. Expressing his gratitude towards Rick, Paul Horstink comments, "Rick's strengths and dedication are a tremendous asset to our company. We are very happy that he will continue to provide leadership and support to our operations in both Decatur and Titusville. I extend my sincere thanks to Rick for his outstanding contributions during this important time for the Alabama business unit, and I look forward to working with him and the leadership team. Beyond Gravity remains committed to building a strong team to continue driving innovation, transformation, and growth."
