MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reliable Robotics, a leader in autonomous aircraft system development, today announced the hires of Myles Goeller, Chief Business Officer and Dr. David O’Brien, Director of Government Solutions. They join as the company gears up for the next development phase of its dual-use flight technology to support rising ecommerce demands globally and increasing interest in Regional Air Mobility (RAM) domestically. The company also recently engaged with the Air Force to determine how its system can support government missions.
With a bold vision for the future of air transportation, Reliable Robotics aims to accelerate change with its remotely operated aircraft system. The versatile autonomy platform can be ported to various aircraft types, and once certified for general aviation, remote pilots will be empowered to fly any plane from any location. These new appointments demonstrate the company’s commitment to serve broad industry applications for autonomous aircraft to improve speed and efficiency, and expand access to more places at lower cost.
As Chief Business Officer, Goeller will lead go-to-market strategy and commercial partnership opportunities worldwide for Reliable Robotics. He brings over 20 years of strategic business and new market development expertise, as well as operational and investment experience within the aviation, aerospace and logistics industries. His deep background spans airlines, airports, cargo, logistics, maintenance, repairs and operations (MROs) as well as governments.
Previously, Goeller built the leading specialized aviation and aerospace advisory business in the world as part of the core leadership team of Seabury Consulting. He spent a decade establishing the company’s Asia Pacific practice based in Hong Kong. Seabury worked with leading airlines, OEMs, integrators, airports and governments around the world on strategy, turnarounds, acquisitions, financing and operational improvements. The company was later acquired by Accenture, where Goeller most recently held the position of Managing Director in the Travel and Hospitality Practice.
As Director of Government Solutions, O’Brien will engage with the Department of Defense and the Federal Government to identify areas of support for mission success, as well as with Universities for institutional research advancement. His multi-industry career and operational leadership experience extends over 38 years across the military, government and private enterprise including aerospace, software and information technology, global e-commerce, manufacturing and operations.
O’Brien served in the United States Air Force in leadership roles including Director of Acquisition Venture Strategy and Initiatives where he pioneered multi-domain, creative commercial strategies, and connected the Air Force with innovative providers and global venture equity investors. As a Major General, he received the Distinguished Service Medal and the Defense Superior Service Medal. In his commercial industry roles, he negotiated strategic deals for Lockheed Martin, Sun Microsystems and the Oracle Corporation, resulting in greater shareholder value and enterprise success.
“Both the private and public sectors are increasingly under pressure to find more efficient and cost-effective air transport solutions,” said Robert Rose, Co-Founder and CEO. “Bringing Myles aboard to build out our commercial organization, and David to collaborate with military and government entities interested in automation, will strengthen our capabilities to address these needs.”
