Richard Godwin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc., has been very active in the U.S. Space Exploration field and is considered an expert on national space policy; to that end he has testified at a U.S. Senate Roundtable. He was called to attend a high-level national policy group to assist in the design of America’s space policy in the wake of the Columbia Space Shuttle disaster. More recently, Richard has been sub-contracted as a business development consultant for SpaceX, working on their nascent DragonLab program. His consultancy company clients include businesses in Bio-Tech, online publishing, science, STEM education, space and alternative energy engineering as well as a variety of marketing arenas. Mr. Godwin has a long history as an entrepreneur. He has founded, built, and successfully sold companies in the UK, Canada and the U.S. over the past 30 years. Notable achievements in the UK include the creation of a small restaurant chain in the late 70’s, which he quickly grew and sold for a profit. At the age of 26, Godwin purchased a 24-bedroom country manor estate, increased the business revenues by a factor of 40, and sold the business only a year later. He next purchased a small division of Thorn EMI, Plc, in London. Again, he grew and sold the company for substantial profit in just three years. After moving to America in 1987, while appointed senior, exclusive broker for one of Mitsubishi Corporation’s Divisions, he identified and developed another niche industry. Later, he founded a compact disc import company in the Chicago area; he developed and grew this organization, which rapidly became the largest import distributor of recorded music in the U.S. with annual sales of over thirty million dollars (US$ 30,000,000.00). From there, he was able to create several sub-companies, as a part of a small conglomerate, including three record labels and a book publishing company, which he still owns today.
