Satellite communications services provider Satcom Global has announced that James Tucker has joined the company as president of the company’s Asia Pacific region.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Mr Tucker, who previously worked for network operator Inmarsat in a variety of senior roles, will be responsible for developing sales strategy and driving growth of key Satcom Global services in Asia, working closely with established teams in Singapore and Japan.

“James’ wide-ranging knowledge and experience in the satellite communications market coupled with the respect he’s afforded by industry peers, makes him a huge asset to the Satcom Global team. At a point where our flagship VSAT solution, Aura, is making serious traction, especially in Asia-based markets, James has the strategic and commercial capability to take it to the next level,” said Ian Robinson, chief executive officer at Satcom Global.

Before joining Satcom Global, Mr Tucker worked most recently in a maritime focused vice president capacity at Inmarsat, managing a range of commercial and solution focussed teams, developing market strategy and successfully growing revenue in key MSS (Mobile Satellite Service) markets.

“It has been a great pleasure to have worked with Satcom Global (and the former AND Group) over my 16 plus years within Inmarsat’s commercial team, so I am excited to be working in-house with the company’s experienced Management Team,” stated Mr Tucker.

“Satcom Global’s commitment to their maritime business and ever-growing account base of major players in the sector, is tribute to their ability to understand end-user needs and deliver solutions to satisfy these. The maritime sector is going through a period of great change and requires increasing communication connectivity at greater speeds, capacity and reliability at competitive, and often predictable pricing.  

I am looking forward to being able to play my part in ensuring that they remain at the front of the market: building maritime communication solutions around the best of what suppliers like Inmarsat, Iridium and Thuraya offer and, of course through their own market leading Aura VSAT solution,” Mr Tucker continued.{/mprestriction}
