Josh Brost is the Vice President of Business Development at Relativity Space, a vertically integrated technology platform that fuses 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and autonomous robotics to design, print, and fly entirely 3D-printed rockets with 100x fewer parts in less than 60 days. In his role, he leads the team responsible for Relativity’s business development strategy and customer mission management efforts.
As an experienced aerospace business leader, Josh has a proven track record of shaping long-term strategies that deliver company revenue growth while also shaping how customers purchase existing services and novel capabilities. Under Josh’s leadership, Relativity’s first rocket, Terran 1 has become one of the most pre-sold rockets in history, with multiple contracts from both private and government entities, including a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contract, a Venture Class Launch Services Demonstration 2 contract with NASA as well as on-demand satellite launch contracts with Iridium, Telesat, among others.
Prior to joining Relativity, Josh spent nine years at SpaceX where he was the Senior Director of Government Business Development, securing more than $3 billion in government and commercial contracts, including SpaceX’s first U.S. Air Force EELV launch services contract, an Other Transaction Authority agreement to develop a new boost stage engine, and the first operational Falcon Heavy mission. Josh also previously worked as a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group and as an aerospace engineer at Boeing.
In addition to a B.A. and M.A in Aerospace Engineering from Arizona State University and The University of Washington respectively, Josh earned his MBA from Harvard Business School.
