David Blain

Bailey Fisher 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 was led by John Bridger, Technology Director at Bailey Fisher.

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