Inmarsat Appoints New Chief Strategy Officer
Fredrik Gustavsson is the new Chief Strategy Officer of Inmarsat. The company announced his appointment June 28. Gustavsson is Inmarsat’s third executive-level appointment in three months and follows a wide-ranging review of the company’s performance and effectiveness undertaken by Inmarsat CEO Rajeev Suri since joining the company earlier this year.
Gustavsson has an interesting background. Between 2012-2019, he was the Head of Strategy and M&A at easyJet. At easyJet, he was responsible to the Management Board across a broad strategy agenda and M&A execution, which included the acquisition of parts of Air Berlin, securing key airport slots for the multinational airline group and the company’s investment in the travel search engine DoHop. More recently, Gustavsson had been the UK-based managing director at Teneo, a global CEO advisory firm.
“My focus is on accelerating our technology leadership, driving sustained growth and strengthening the company culture. To help do that, I am enhancing the company’s executive team and have already appointed a new Chief Commercial and Product Officer and Chief Marketing and Communications Officer,” Inmarsat CEO Rajeev Suri said in a statement.
