Georgie Brophy, formerly an executive at General Dynamics Missions Systems, has been named director of business development for space systems at Noblis, focusing on the company’s space systems portfolio.
She will bring in the role more than 28 years of experience in strategy and business development for the space industry, the company said Wednesday.
Mile Corrigan, vice president for Noblis federal civilian solutions, said Brophy has an extensive background in satellite ground networks and mission operations. “Her experience with NASA and NOAA satellite programs, including the former Space Shuttle program, spans over 20 years and we look forward to her contributions across our space business,” she said.

Before joining Noblis, Brophy has held several senior management positions in business management and development, client relations and strategy in the federal government and commercial industries.
She spent eight years at GDMS specializing in the establishment of business relationships and opportunities for the company’s NASA and military communications unit. Her responsibilities included bridging the gap between customers' requirements and the group’s products and services. She also coordinated with other professionals in the space industry to enhance the company’s customer support.
Early in her career, Brophy served as a consultant at Omnitron for six years and at International Technology Management for over a year. In that period, she directed space shuttle mission operations for the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Hitchhiker Program and assisted satellite mission activities for various science tasks.
