CSF President Michael Lopez-Alegria Statement on Lori Garver’s Departure from NASA

“Throughout her years of service and leadership at NASA, Lori Garver has been a stalwart champion of commercial space and of the public-private partnerships that have begun to change the way the Agency does business,” said CSF President Michael Lopez-Alegria. “The innovations she promoted will serve the Agency well as it navigates a period of change and challenge. We will miss Lori in the space community and wish her the best as she sets a new course for herself.  I know she will continue to be a leader and role model in all of her future endeavors.”
