SVP Mike French leads Bryce Expansion

We are thrilled to inform you Bryce is expanding. Our team, services, and locations are all growing in 2018.

Led by Senior Vice President for Commercial Space Mike French, Bryce Space and Technology is expanding its commercial space strategy and investment advisory practice. Bryce helps clients set strategy and close deals in the rapidly changing space economy. As independent market analysts, engineers, and strategic advisors to commercial and government decision makers, Bryce welcomes French’s distinguished expertise and leadership in this new expansion.

French will work directly with commercial executives to engage in strategy development, including new market entry plans, competitor assessments, realignment of legacy plans, and emerging market analysis. He will consult with investment firms and banks during valuations and due diligence for space and technology acquisitions, investments, and mergers.

French’s experience in the space industry ranges from advising senior leaders at NASA and the White House on commercial space policy, to analyzing major space investments for funds and banks, to helping start-up technology companies build business plans.

Previously NASA’s Chief of Staff, French advised the NASA Administrator, the White House, and other government leadership on national space policy issues. He helped shape and obtain funding for NASA’s commercial space programs and advanced innovative public private partnerships, including a privately-funded Mars science mission and a cost-sharing program to develop space habitat systems. French received NASA’s Distinguished Service Medal for his service.

Prior to serving in government, he practiced law in the defense and aerospace sector in Los Angeles. As an attorney, he conducted internal investigations of major aerospace weapons systems for a leading defense industry client and represented financial services, energy, and biotechnology clients in litigation. French has a Bachelor of Science in business administration from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.

We are honored to have Mike French join our executive team and bring his career expertise to our growing commercial partners, especially as we expand into Europe in 2018. Wish Mike a warm welcome at
