During his leadership, the company achieved the launch, first flight, and capture of more than 15 new air and space advanced designs, including two key commercial space ventures – one for Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, and the other for Paul Allen’s Stratolaunch under Scaled Composites, a Burt Rutan-founded company, integrated within his division. Prior to joining Northrop Grumman, Meyer also served in a variety of program management and business development roles at Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works.
