Commenting on the appointment, Pamela A Drew, Board Chair said at EAC, said: “We are pleased to welcome Kevin to Eutelsat America Corp. and are confident his extensive experience will be an asset to us as we merge the two companies. The combination of OWT and EAC brings an unparalleled, multi-orbit satellite communications capability to address the unique mission needs of the US Government.”
