Space Foundation Announces Executive Search for New CEO

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — Space Foundation, a nonprofit advocate organization founded in 1983 for the global space ecosystem, today announced the executive search for its next chief executive officer.

Earlier this year, current Chief Executive Officer Tom Zelibor signed a contract extension to continue his leadership of the organization. Since becoming Space Foundation’s CEO in May 2017, Zelibor has diversified the organization’s portfolio to include major initiatives in education, space commerce, and workforce development. Zelibor will retire following the conclusion of the 38th Space Symposium, to be held April 17-20, 2023.

Space Foundation has been named six times by The Nonprofit Times and Best Companies Group as among the 50 best non-profit organizations to work for in the U.S. The CEO will be based at Space Foundation headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colo. to lead a premier team of over 100 professionals, providing information, education, and collaboration services to the space industry, educators and students, government officials, and news media around the world. The search for Space Foundation’s next CEO is being led by McAleer Gray, a national boutique executive search firm based in Denver, Colo.

Inquiries about the search may be directed to Brad Gray, founding partner of McAleer Gray, at [email protected]. No calls or inquiries will be accepted by Space Foundation.
