Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) today announced a strategic addition to its senior leadership team, naming Brooke Salkoff, a 20+ year national media and communications professional, as corporate director of communications based in Sparks, Nevada. The move aims to expand SNC’s communications activities, including its media outreach, after a year of growth for the company.
SNC continues to attract top talent on the heels of significant corporate developments including the acquisition of London-based 328 Support Service GmbH, owner of all Dornier 328 intellectual property and assets, and formation of TRJet Havacilik Teknolojileri Anonim Şirketi (TRJet), a subsidiary that is expected to create the Republic of Turkey’s first regional jet, the TRJ628™.In addition, early in 2015, SNC acquired Kutta Technologies and Kutta Radios, leaders in Unmanned Technologies, and announced its work on the Dream Chaser® Cargo System, SNC’s solution for NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services 2 (CRS2) contract.
“I am honored to join a phenomenal team at Sierra Nevada Corporation,” Salkoff said. “It is humbling to see the engineering capabilities and commitment to quality and service within the company. This inspires pride among SNC’s 3,000 personnel worldwide and a palpable trust in the company across the military community, and among our elected representatives and commercial partners.”
Most recently, Salkoff, who reported for NBC News for more than a decade using her maiden name, Brooke Hart, served as venture partner for Crystal Tech Fund, based in Crystal City, Virginia. She also served as senior communications officer at The Pew Charitable Trusts. Salkoff graduated from Stanford University and earned her graduate degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
