Andrea Legary, P.Eng

Chief Science and Technology Officer

As CSTO at The Recoup Group, I work with clients to access R&D government grants and incentives, including Canada's Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) program. What I love most about my career is the opportunity to meet brilliant engineers and assist them to obtain funding to continue their research and increase the global competitiveness of Canadian companies.

In my previous Engineering career, I had the honor of working on some of Canada's top Space and Defense projects. These include the opportunity to design the thermal system for CASSIOPE, a Canadian Space Agency commissioned satellite, oversight of the production and delivery of Black Brant sounding rockets utilized by NASA, and management of the engineering projects and capital budgets for the Joint Strike Fighter F-35 Program at Magellan Aerospace. Additionally, I managed the procurement of $10M of structural components in support of the manufacture of the Canadian Space Agency's RadarSat Constellation Mission satellite program for Magellan.
