Dara’s areas of expertise include start-ups, building high performance teams, driving change and working to define and embed culture.

Formerly the EVP of HR & Organisation Development at O3b and EVP of HR and Culture Transformation for SES Networks (one of Isotropic Systems’ strategic investors), McCann’s 10 years in-depth experience of building high-performance teams within the satellite industry will prove itself to be an invaluable benefit to Isotropic Systems as they continue to scale up and launch transformational new technology for satellite communications.

Dara McCann (above) said: “Isotropic is innovating across several industry domains and that brings the need to attract the very best global talent. Joining Isotropic Systems at this stage in their development allows me to build on the already strong culture of innovation and customer focus, developing our talented team to create a world-class global company.”

A Fellow of the Royal Chartered Institute of Human Resources and with over 25 years of HR experience, 10 of which have been in the Satellite industry, McCann’s expertise in building high performance teams and maximising workforce efficiency are especially crucial now. With the commercial launch on track for rollout in 2022, the company expects to significantly scale up the current workforce in the next 12 months, adding additional resources to the rapidly expanding teams in the US and the UK.

John Finney, Isotropic Systems Founder & CEO said: “Dara is an extraordinary addition to the Senior Leadership Team at Isotropic Systems. We are preparing to scale across research and development, productization, new product introductions, contract manufacturing, global sales and business development, service delivery and more.

"Dara’s experience of scaling high-growth companies, staffing with diverse talent, and ensuring equal opportunities will be a powerful asset for the company.”
