Brendan Groves

Brendan Groves

Brendan Groves serves on the leadership team of Skydio, the largest U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight. As the Vice President for policy and regulatory, Brendan works with customers, policy makers, and regulators in the U.S. and international markets to unlock safe and effective autonomous operations.

Before joining Skydio, he held senior positions in the federal government, serving most recently as Associate Deputy Attorney General in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). In that role, he managed DOJ’s national security policy portfolio and led and scaled DOJ’s drone program. As a member of the FAA’s Executive Committee on UAS, Brendan helped to shape the government’s approach to integrating drones into the national airspace.  In addition, he played a central role in the effort to counter the threat posed by malicious drones, spearheading the development and passage of pathbreaking Counter-UAS legislation.

Brendan began his career as an Air Force JAG Officer, where he worked with remotely piloted aircraft and deployed to Afghanistan with joint special operations forces. Brendan is a graduate of Yale Law School and Pepperdine University.
