To infinity and beyond! Join the Gold Coast Central Chamber as we host the chief executive officer of Gilmour Space Technologies, Adam Gilmour, to discuss the future of the space industry in Queensland.
Adam Gilmour is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Gilmour Space Technologies, a private space company that is pioneering rocket development and launch in Australia. Before starting his career in space, Adam spent over two decades at Citi managing a billion-dollar regional sales business dealing in complex financial products for institutional and corporate clients in the Asia Pacific. An avid space fan, his inspiration for change came in 2004 when the X-Prize was won by Scaled Composites’ SpaceShipOne, which demonstrated just how affordable spaceflight could be. Today, he is leading a growing team of talented engineers in Queensland, Australia, on a mission to develop and deliver truly low-cost access to space.
