Johanne Lecomte has been hired as the new vice president of sales, marketing and communications for International Launch Services (ILS). As a key member of the ILS executive team, Lecomte is responsible for leading the implementation of sales, marketing strategy, customer relations and new business development.

Lecomte succeeds Wendy Mihalic, who has retired after a successful career in the commercial launch industry.

Lecomte comes to ILS with over 20 years of experience serving the telecommunications industry, most recently as vice president for sales and marketing at EADS North America (Astrium) where she was responsible for spacecraft and payload sales, business development and marketing activities in North America.

Prior to that, Lecomte managed various business development and engineering projects in Canada, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East for Dynegy Communications and Teleglobe International.

Lecomte holds a BSEE, from Ecole Polytechnique and an MSEE, from Sherbrooke University.

Khrunichev, which holds the majority interest in ILS, is one of the cornerstones of the Russian space industry. Khrunichev manufactures the Proton system and is developing the Angara launch system. The Proton launches from facilities at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and has a heritage of 364 missions since 1965.

Khrunichev includes, among its branches, a number of key manufacturers of launch vehicle and spacecraft components in Moscow and in other cities of the Russian Federation. For more information, visit
