Stellar Labs Names Tim O'Brien Chief Operating Officer

ORLANDO, FL, November 1, 2016 – Stellar Labs, a pioneer in technology for private jet aviation, today announced that Tim O’Brien has been named Chief Operating Officer. Tim has more than two decades of technology management experience serving in senior management roles at SalesForce.com, Slalom Consulting, Accenture, and most recently as VP of Program Management at Stellar.

“Tim is a seasoned and trusted executive who consistently produces results,” said Stellar President David Fox. “I have tremendous confidence in his ability to execute across a broad range of disciplines, from Agile development, to program management, and award-winning customer service and CRM.”

In his most recent role, O’Brien was Vice President of Program Management with responsibility for setting standard processes across product development and operator services. He is also responsible for aligning the objectives of a unified platform for business aviation across multiple teams at Rockwell Collins and Stellar, now numbering over 80 personnel focused on the development of a next-generation cloud-based platform.

Prior to joining Stellar Labs, O’Brien was Director of Customer Success at SalesForce.com, a leading social, and mobile technology company in enterprise cloud computing. He was instrumental in driving successful programs for a portfolio of Saleforce’s largest enterprise customers and enabling best practice guidance in the complete customer lifecycle.

“Over the next 24 months, I look forward to realizing the vision of a unified, end-to-end platform for business aviation, from online booking and payment, through a global distribution system (GDS), to revenue management, CRM, optimization, flight planning, dispatch, trip support, safety management, and pre- and post-flight operations,” said O’Brien. “Stellar is unique because of our deep focus on the board set of problems operators face that will increase efficiency, enhance profits and move business aviation online. The unified commercial and flight operations management platform we are developing with Rockwell Collins will fundamentally change how operators do business. I am proud to lead that effort and honored to be part of a world-class team.”
