Bailey Fisher Executive Search is pleased to have assisted SatSense, a spin-out from the University of Leeds, with the search for a CEO, resulting in the appointment of David Blain.

SatSense makes innovative use of satellite data to map ground deformation for use in what is potentially a huge global market.  The SatSense technology can precisely measure changes in ground movement to as little as 1mm per year and represents a step change in resolution and accuracy over anything that is currently in the market.

Following investment from NPIF – Mercia Equity Finance which is part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, Unipart Rail and the University of Leeds, Bailey Fisher was engaged to search for a CEO to work with the founders to develop the commercial position of the company.

The search resulted in the appointment of David Blain, a commercial leader with strong software sales experience within SatSense’s target client-base.

The search was led by John Bridger, Technology Director at Bailey Fisher Executive Search, whose particular area of focus is Seed to Series A stage technology companies.
