Aaron Lewis is the Vice President for Government Relations and Corporate Communications for Arianespace, Inc., a multinational company founded in 1980 as the world’s first commercial launch service provider. Today it is the World’s leading satellite launch company. Headquartered in Paris, Arianespace has delivered more than 600 satellites to orbit. Approximately one-fourth of the more than 250 launch services contracts signed by Arianespace since its creation in 1980 are with U.S. organizations, and at least half involve U.S.-built spacecraft.
Aaron has served Arianespace for over 14 years and currently handles U.S. public and media relations, as well as directs the company’s interactions with the US government. He has been involved in publicity campaigns for over 100 rocket launches during that time.
Prior to joining Arianespace, Aaron was director of communications for the chairman of the Space and Aeronautics subcommittee in the House of Representatives. Lewis graduated from St. John’s College Annapolis, Maryland where he studied the History of Math and Science, and Philosophy.
