MOJAVE, Calif. ñ Feb. 18, Virgin Galactic, the worlds first commercial spaceline, announced John S. Rego has joined the company as its new Chief Financial Officer. Rego brings nearly three decades of finance, accounting and operations experience to the commercial space company.

As CFO, Rego will provide overall strategic and operational direction to Virgin Galactics accounting, finance, financial planning and analysis, treasury, risk and tax activities.
