Satellite operator Eutelsat is tightening its management structure, with Michel Azibert, Deputy CEO, taking commercial and development activities under his direct responsibility as of June 23. He succeeds Jean-François Leprince-Ringuet who becomes special advisor to the CEO.
Michel de Rosen, Chairman and CEO of Eutelsat, said that under the commercial leadership of Leprince-Ringuet, Eutelsat had broadened its business in terms of applications and regions served, strengthened its sales force and increased proximity to clients via offices in key markets. “With commercial activity now placed under the stewardship of Michel Azibert, and a tightened management structure, we will more than ever focus our energies on enhancing the quality of service we provide our customers, expanding our user base and seizing opportunities presented by an evolving business environment.”
Azibert joined Eutelsat as Deputy CEO in 2011 from TDF where his roles included Development and International Director and Group Deputy CEO.
