Continued upward trajectory expected for Earth observation solutions pioneers

San Diego, February 15, 2024 – Earth observation for infrastructure intelligence pioneers, ASTERRA, announced several strategic promotions and new hires to support its rapidly expanding SaaS business.

“Following great financial results in 2023 from the development of EO Discover and the successful transition to our SaaS solution, and with the expected continuation of this growth trend in 2024, we are thrilled to expand the roles of several executives and add additional team members to ASTERRA,” said Elly Perets, chief executive officer of ASTERRA.

To support the expansion of the ASTERRA team and each member’s impact, Gary Eaton was appointed Chief of Staff.

Jasmin Inbar, the Vice President of Corporate and Business Development, has had her role expanded. In addition to her current position, she now serves as the head of the Earth Observation division. This new division was established because ASTERRA sees limitless possibilities for growth using Earth observation to solve problems on Earth. She will oversee the expansion of ASTERRA solutions.

Jacquie Matzkin was named Head of Products. She will guide ASTERRA as the team moves from research and development to product, applying knowledge, experience, and the voice of customers to the product development cycle.

On the sales side, the recent successes and continued interest in ASTERRA solutions in Latin America also drove additions to the team. Cesar Garcia is now the Sales Manager for the southwest and Latin America.

ASTERRA has also seen continued expansion of business focused on water and their SaaS solution. Now providing support for these programs is Michal Giveon-Cohen, sales and support manager for the water division.
