Sales Operations Manager
Stephen Hanna started his GEOINT career off at Geoeye in 2013 after a previous career in Travel and Tourism. After Geoeye he joined Vricon – the DG -SAAB Joint Venture – as part of the 2nd round of hires with the mission to “build the globe in 3D”. Starting in the 3D Production department as a 3D Geospatial Analyst Stephen eventually found his home demonstrating Vricon’s products, capabilities and workflows in front of customers. This led to a transfer to the sales department as an ISR then Sales Engineer and later a Sales Operations Analyst. In his current role as a Sales Operations Manager in the USG Strategic Growth Team at Maxar, Stephen brings his experience of scaling up and optimizing sales departments.
Stephen has been a member of the USGIF Young Professionals Group since 2015, winner of a 2019 Golden Ticket to GEOINT symposium in San Antonio Texas, a member of the YPG working group since 2019, and currently one of the interim co-chairs of the YPG WG.
Stephen brings his passion and energy about the GEOINT tradecraft as well as Space sustainability to USGIF. More specifically he is excited to contribute to the USGIF’s main mission of developing and strengthening a community of interest between government, industry, academia, professional organizations and individuals who share a mission focused on the development and application of geospatial intelligence to improve national security.
