Houston-based Barrios Technology announced November 15 that it has welcomed Ginger Kerrick Davis to its Executive Leadership Team. Davis takes on the role of Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at the company’s headquarters in Houston. Ginger will use her wealth of human spaceflight experience in both leadership and technical roles to guide the implementation of Barrios’ strategic vision.
Prior to joining the Barrios executive team, Ginger served in multiple senior leadership roles at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). Most recently she was the Deputy Director of the Exploration Integration and Science Directorate, a Senior Executive Service position. She spent the majority of her 30-year NASA career supporting JSC’s Flight Operations Directorate (FOD) in leadership roles, including Assistant Director for International Space Station (ISS), Flight Integration Division Chief, and Flight Director (the first female Hispanic Flight Director). Early in her career she was NASA’s first Russian Training Integration Instructor as well as being selected as the first non-astronaut Capsule Communicator (CAPCOM).
“Our entire executive team is excited to have Ginger Kerrick Davis join the Barrios family. She brings a wealth of experience directly related to our strategic purpose, a passion for helping teams develop and achieve their goals, and a true dedication to the mission”, said Kelly Page, Barrios’ President.
Ginger received numerous awards in her NASA career, including NASA’s prestigious Silver Snoopy Award, recognizing her contributions to flight safety and mission success. Ginger was one of five women named to the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame in 2016.
Davis holds a BS and MS degree in Physics from Texas Tech University (TTU), is a Distinguished Alumna of TTU, and serves on TTU’s Board of Regents, having been nominated for that role by the governor of Texas. Mentoring future STEM employees is a passion of hers as well as sharing her ideas on leadership. Barrios is proud to support Ginger as she continues to make a positive impact on the future generation of space explorers and leaders.
Barrios Technology, the 4th largest woman-owned business headquartered in the greater Houston region, brings together some of the most talented employees and leaders in the space industry to achieve its purpose of passionately advancing humanity, on and off the planet, with innovative technology integration solutions.
