It’s an exciting time to become President of Intelsat General Corp. – a time of challenges and opportunities, and a time that includes a great new asset to help meet both: the high-throughput Intelsat EpicNG constellation of satellites. The most important aspects of the job do not change, no matter who occupies the seat. We want to continue to lead the commercial satellite industry in bringing value to our government customers. Our mission is to help them understand how to make better use of our satellites and investment. My job is to continue to act upon priorities established by our leadership team in 2015 and reaffirmed earlier this year. Three of those priorities are:
- Providing customers with the best suite of secure and advanced solutions available for satellite communication in the air and on land and sea.
- Showing government stakeholders – and particularly the Air Force — how Intelsat experts can offer value by operating government flight and ground systems. Notable among them: Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) and the Air Force Satellite Control Network.
- Helping the U.S. maintain space superiority by participating in developing a more resilient wideband space architecture.
