Grant Bonin leads Spaceflight’s Business Development unit as Senior Vice President. He works at the intersection of engineering, strategy and business development, and oversees our sales team while working with every team internally to ensure our customers’ mission success.
Grant is an industry veteran. Prior to joining Spaceflight, Grant was the Chief Engineer of Space Systems at Rocket Lab, where he created their space systems group, space strategy and set of technologies and products, including leading development of their Photon satellite program. Prior to Rocket Lab, Grant was Chief Technology Officer at Deep Space Industries, which (among other highly ambitious goals) provided propulsion for BlackSky constellation. And before that, he was with UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory in Toronto, Canada, where he worked on high-performance small spacecraft ranging from cubesat scale to ESPA-grande class.
When not opening up access to space, Grant can be found driving cars at irresponsible speeds (in appropriate areas), spending time with his two kids and playing guitar. He also is a Detroit Lions fan, proof he is an eternal optimist.
