Sidus Space Expands Management Leadership Structure Ahead of its LizzieSat Constellation Launch
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sidus Space, Inc. (“Sidus” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SIDU), a multi-faceted Space and Data-as-a-Service company, today is expanding its management leadership structure ahead of its LizzieSat™ constellation launch with SpaceX beginning in the first quarter of 2024.
To support the launch and management of the LizzieSat constellation, the Company has adjusted the organization of its leadership team and promoted from within. Management expects to accelerate the offerings of Data-as-a-Service, Technology Payload Hosting, and the sale of its Artificial Intelligence (AI), both as an independent service and as a part of its data offering.
Sidus first created the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) and subsequently promoted Jared Novick on September 27, 2023. The Company is today also announcing the promotion of Lindsey Waitt to LizzieSat Program Manager. In this role, Waitt will lead the engineering team and provide leadership on all technical decisions.
Jamie Adams, who previously served as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for the company, made the decision to step down from this role, effective as of October 24, 2023. In addition to resigning from his position as CTO, he has also chosen to vacate his seat on the Sidus Space Board of Directors. These changes within the organization have led to the removal of the CTO role.
The rationale behind this change is that the responsibilities that were traditionally associated with the CTO position are now being managed and overseen by other key roles within the company. Specifically, the COO, the Chief Mission Operations Officer, and the LizzieSat Program Manager have assumed the duties and functions that were previously handled by the CTO. This strategic restructuring reflects the evolving needs and priorities of the organization, allowing for a more streamlined and efficient management of technical and operational aspects within Sidus Space.
“I am thrilled to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Lindsey on her well-deserved promotion. This accomplishment is a testament to her hard work, dedication, and exceptional contributions to our team and company,” said Jared Novick, Chief Operating Officer. “Lindsey's commitment to excellence and her consistent efforts have been noticed by both her immediate team and Sidus’ leadership. Her promotion underscores her leadership skills and the positive impact she's had on our organization. She's an inspiration to all of us.”
“On behalf of Sidus, I want to thank Jamie for his numerous contributions to Sidus over the past two years,” said Carol Craig, Sidus’ CEO and Founder. “During this time, Jamie’s expertise was critical to the development of our innovative and unique coincident data collection satellite.”
