John Quinn, CEO at Exos Aerospace
Before taking on the role of CEO, Quinn was the company’s chief operating officer for six years. As COO, he played a key role in the development of hypersonic reusable launch vehicles as part of a Small Business Innovation Research contract with the Air Force, as well as in the execution of the company’s National Charter Enterprise model, according to his LinkedIn profile.
In addition to co-founding Exos Aerospace, Quinn established a number of other businesses earlier in his career.
His first venture was the establishment of Megawatt Control Solutions, which specialized in the development of autonomous algorithmic controls.
Quinn’s earlier work for MCS focused on applying an algorithmic control philosophy to a $30 million Toshiba steam turbine control system. After tweaking the system and solving its optimization issues, MCS sold its intellectual property rights to Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions.
While at MCS, Quinn also worked with Florida Power & Light Company, the principal subsidiary of NextEra Energy.
Intellectual property sales generated by MCS funded Quinn’s next company, Martin Systems and Technology, where he worked on submarine prototypes. He gained valuable government contracting experience at MST, which he now applies as one of the main leaders of Exos Aerospace.
Quinn holds a bachelor’s degree in instrumentation and controls from Regent University.
