LOS GATOS, Calif. – August 24, 2022

E-Space, a global space company focused on bridging Earth and space with the most sustainable low earth orbit (LEO) network, today announced it expanded its leadership team with the addition of Gunjan Murarka as chief financial officer (CFO) and Dalibor Djuran as chief satellite systems engineer. The addition of these two valuable positions will enable E-Space to accelerate its novel LEO network, which will be both the safest satellite constellation ever, and make space affordable and accessible for everyone to solve problems on Earth.

“Team E-Space is in a heavy growth mode, and we are fortunate to have so many qualified candidates who want to join our important mission. We are headed toward a period of tremendous global strategic execution which requires significant leadership and domain expertise to drive our core initiatives,” said Greg Wyler, chairman, founder and CEO of E-Space. “I am confident Gunjan and Dalibor possess the right mix of experience, fundamental core strengths and depth of skill to uniquely add immediate business and engineering value, respectively. At E-Space, we believe we have a powerful opportunity to change how satellite constellations are responsibly designed, built and leveraged by enterprises and nations, alike. I welcome Gunjan and Dalibor to our team, which is challenging the status quo of today’s new space systems.”
