SES has brought together all of its engineering activities into a single entity covering satellite, ground, procurement, engineering and operational services. Martin Halliwell, SES Astra’s long serving chief technology officer, has been appointed president of the new SES Engineering. Halliwell will also join the SES Executive Committee.
“This reorganisation is part of SES’ commitment to achieve greater operational synergies, and to enable our operating companies to concentrate more completely on their market facing activities,” said Romain Bausch, president and CEO of SES.
SES Engineering will be based at SES facilities in Luxembourg and the United States and is expected to be fully operational as of January 1, 2008. It will serve SES Astra, SES New Skies and SES Americom.
