SES Names the New CEO for Its Networks Division
SES has appointed John-Paul Hemingway as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SES Networks, effective April 5. Hemingway succeeds Steve Collar, who has officially taken on his new position as president and CEO of SES.
Hemingway previously served as SES Networks’ executive vice president of product, marketing and strategy, where he was responsible for business development, strategy, product development and management as well as marketing. He was the Chief Marketing Officer of O3b Networks before SES acquired the company and integrated it into its data-focused business unit, SES Networks. Hemingway joined O3b from the network specialist Ciena, where he held various senior management roles in strategy, sales, product, marketing and technical functions.
“John-Paul was instrumental in the outstanding success of O3b and its integration into SES,” said Collar. “Not only is John-Paul an executive with extensive skill sets and experiences in numerous disciplines, his background in the telecommunications and network industry also means that he has great insights into what our customers are seeking when building and managing their network and business solutions.”
