DigitalGlobe announced the opening of an office in Washington D.C. to better serve the company's U.S. Government customers. The office will be led by Dawn Sienicki, who has joined DigitalGlobe as director of Washington D.C. operations. Dawn Sienicki is the former executive director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Space Enterprise Council and brings to DigitalGlobe a more consistent voice in Congress and with the Executive Branch.

"The establishment of the Washington D.C. office and the addition of Dawn to the DigitalGlobe team demonstrates our commitment to U.S. Government customers," said Herb Satterlee, CEO and chairman of DigitalGlobe. "Dawn's style, experience and proven track record of success in starting an operation from the ground up makes her a natural fit for DigitalGlobe."

Serving as a DigitalGlobe liaison with Capitol Hill and the Executive Branch, Sienicki will enable DigitalGlobe to more easily establish and cultivate relationships with government agencies and customers, develop and manage legislative and political strategies, track and shape policies affecting the industry and DigitalGlobe, and bolster the company's participation in advisory groups and industry organizations.

The move is on par with the forward momentum the current administration has generated in support of the commercial remote sensing industry. President Bush's "U.S. Commercial Remote Sensing Space Policy" was signed on April 25, 2003 and released on May 13, 2003. The directive orders federal government agencies to rely more heavily on private satellite companies to provide images from space.

As executive director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Space Enterprise Council, located in Washington, D.C., Sienicki was responsible for developing the Council's policy positions and leading its advocacy efforts in areas such as remote sensing, space transportation and export controls. Sienicki was also responsible for the strategic planning, financial administration, fundraising, membership development and public relations of the Council.

Prior to working for the Space Enterprise Council, Sienicki worked in international policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and prior to that, worked for the International Policy Council on Agriculture, Food and Trade.

Sienicki holds a B.A. in international relations with a concentration in business and economics, and a minor in Spanish from Muhlenberg College.
