Hector O. Viera

Program Integration Manager
Launch Services Program Business Office
NASA Kennedy Space Center

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and went to the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus where I received my Bachelor’s in Science in Business Administration in Operation Management and Project Management and I am currently pursuing a Master in Business Administration (MBA). I started in Kennedy Space Center as an intern in 2012 and did a full year intership in the Launch Service Program (LSP) Business Office. I have been responsible for the development and coordination of over 50 unique mission-pricing scenarios for the Agency.

I serve as a Program Integration Manager (PIM) and Contracting Officer Representative (COR) for LSP, having responsibility for the integration of technical mission integration requirements from a budget and contract management perspective. I have been responsible for missions with extra-Agency customers (such as for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration missions), as well as NASA missions under the Science Mission Directorate (SMD).

In my free time I manage and operate my own company and love to play sports and work/modify cars.
