His expertise and proven track record in managing funding for the SES acquisition of O3B is an area which is extremely relevant for a growing satellite communications company like LeoSat.

Peter commented: “I am excited to be joining LeoSat at this pivotal point in the company’s evolution. LeoSat’s low earth orbit constellation comes with a unique set of attributes which are already receiving significant attention from both the commercial and government sectors and I definitely see LeoSat as a game-changer in data communications, enabling new opportunities through previously unavailable levels of performance combined with true worldwide reach.”
