Eutelsat is making some changes to its executive committee, bringing in a new chief commercial officer and revamping its deployment department as the strategy and resources department.
Philippe Oliva moves from executive vice-president, sales and products to succeed Michel Azibert as chief commercial officer. The 46 year-old will be responsible for defining and supervising the commercial policy, as well as generating revenue for the Group.
Michel Azibert will remain deputy chief executive Officer and, in this role, will participate in all matters of importance to the Group.
Jean-Hubert Lenotte, 51, who’s currently director of strategy and strategic marketing, will also be taking charge of the new strategy and resources department and will be responsible for Eutelsat’s satellite fleet, frequency management and resource planning.
The previous director of deployment, Jacques Dutronc will become director of development, coordinating Group-wide business development projects.
