Vice President of the Space Market, LMI
Zac Gorrell’s biggest recent achievement was leading his prior company, Synaptech, through the acquisition process during 2022 and facilitating the successful integration into LMI during the first half of this year.
As the CEO and cofounder of Synaptech, Gorrell built the company from the ground up, growing it into a thriving company of approximately 60 full-time engineers and scientists in the Colorado Springs, Colorado, area. Synaptech focused on becoming one of the top technical solution providers and trusted partners in the national security space industry.
“We found the perfect strategic partner in LMI,” Gorrell said. “We share the same culture, mission focus, spirit of innovation, and vision for the future.”
Doug Wagoner, president and CEO of LMI, said Gorrell has been an integral asset to LMI’s space market development and success.
“He and his team are pushing the frontier of space innovation with transformative, efficient, and effective technologies to solve our customers’ most pressing challenges at the pace of need,” Wagoner said. “Zac’s passion for the mission is evident and it’s a privilege to witness his team’s success in forging new paths in the space domain.”
In 2023, Gorrell and his team are focused on expanding on the momentum from Synaptech. His team delivers innovative software and analytical solutions at scale that protect and defend missions. Their work ensures space warfighters make key decisions with confidence, speed and clarity. They will leverage LMI’s extensive capabilities and expanded resources for even greater outcomes for customers like the Space Warfighting Analysis Center, the Space Training and Readiness Command, the National Reconnaissance Office and U.S. Space Command.
“The dawning of this new golden age in space protection, technology, and exploration offers us a unique opportunity,” he said. “I am humbled and grateful to lead LMI’s space market. It is an honor to work with the best and brightest minds in the space industry each day. At LMI, we are passionate about the mission. We will always work our hardest to support our customers’ needs and ensure the continued peaceful use and protection of the ultimate high ground.”
