      Telesat has appointed Philip Harlow as president of Telesat Government Solutions, the company’s subsidiary that provides satellite solutions to the U.S. government and allied nations. 

      He will replace Tom Eaton, who announced this past summer that he would retire at the end of the year after serving as president of Telesat Government Solutions since October 2021. 

      Harlow was most recently president and CEO of DTC Communications. He was previously vice president of the Global Solutions Group for SES Government Solutions and also spent eight years as president and COO of XTAR, LLC, working with military and government users to access commercial space platforms. He has worked for a number of defense integrators and satellite operators including Caprock Communications, DRS Technical Services, Intelsat General, and Esatel Communications.

      “Philip’s distinguished career in delivering best-in-class solutions to the U.S. Government and defense sector spans leadership roles with satellite operators, satcom integrators, and military service. He’s the right choice for executing our vision of delivering assured, cutting-edge solutions to support the U.S. government and allied nations’ defense missions,” said Dan Goldberg, president and CEO of Telesat.
