Tom Jackson, President of Sarcos Defense
Jackson assumed his current position in March 2019. He is at the forefront of the company’s strategic efforts and leads business development and program execution for robotics and unmanned aircraft systems/counter-UAS customers, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He joined Sarcos Defense following a two-year stint with Aeryon Defense, a Denver, Colorado-based company that develops small UAS and software for U.S. military forces and government agencies.
In his first year at Aeryon Defense, he was appointed as vice president of global defense and government sales. He played a key role in driving sales growth and establishing the company’s U.S. subsidiary.
The following year, he served as VP and general manager of Aeryon Defense USA. During that time, he supported the integration of Aeryon Defense into FLIR Systems.
Earlier in his career, he worked for Sierra Nevada Corporation.
For two-and-a-half years, he served as SNC’s U.S. defense systems engineering program manager. He also spent more than five years as the company’s senior director of international military business development.
Before entering the private sector, he served for the U.S. Marine Corps for nearly 25 years. During that time, he was assigned to several roles, including AH-1W attack helicopter pilot, combat qualification flight instructor and aviation maintenance officer.
Jackson was commissioned as an officer in the Marine Corps after graduating from The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, South Carolina.
