The Board of Directors of Spacecom, which operates the AMOS satellite fleet, has appointed Dan Zajicek as new CEO, effective April 1, the company announced Thursday. Zajicek has been the CEO of Satcom Systems, which owns Gilat Satcom, since 2012. He has also worked for Bezeq International, Israel’s Communications Ministry and Israel’s Finance Ministry. Itzik Shnaiberg, who has served as acting CEO since January, will return to his position as deputy CEO.

“I am very excited to join Spacecom,” Zajicek said. “With four satellites serving communities in four different regions, and with three of those satellites servicing Africa, Spacecom is moving forward in meeting its long-term business goals. We have a bright future in our fast-moving business environment, and I will bring our competitive advantages to the fore and keep the company advancing into growing markets.”

Satcom Systems separately announced on Thursday that it has appointed Asaf Rosenheck, previously the vice president of Sales and of Business Development, to succeed Zajicek as CEO.
