From fin tech to space tech - Satellite Vu welcomes Alan Bettridge as Chief Commercial Officer
Satellite Vu, the UK space and climate tech company, has appointed Alan Bettridge as their Chief Commercial Officer.
Founded to bring satellite tech to global challenges, Satellite Vu have created a unique technology that can capture the temperature data of any structure on the planet in near real-time to determine valuable insights into economic activity, energy efficiency and carbon footprint; enabling business and government to make decisions based on evidence and measurement.
This hire follows the companies announcement of their £81M Early Access Programme, which highlights the clear need for their unique heat mapping technologies across a range of industries.
Bettridge has a wealth of experience serving the financial services industry with data and insights, most recently delivering the next generation of ESG and climate intelligence. He'll head up Satellite Vu’s development and commercial strategies, helping to drive their Early Access Option Programme and fuel the company’s growth overseas.
