Inmarsat is reaching out to partners and customers following a reorganisation within the company. Adressing the press in Dubai during the Volvo Ocean Race that Inmarsat supports as official satellite communications provider, newly appointed CEO Rupert Pearce spoke of bringing the expertise of the subsidiary companies into a new organisational structure. And, as part of the process, all companies in the Inmarsat group – including Stratos Global, Segovia and Ship Equip – will now use the brand name “Inmarsat”.
“We have led the mobile satellite services market as a wholesale organisation. This restructure will build on that by bringing us closer to our customers, making us more responsive to their needs and more efficient in the delivery of our services,” said Inmarsat chief executive Rupert Pearce.
Inmarsat Solutions, led by Jim Parm, will operate through four new marketfacing business units that include maritime, government US, government global and Inmarsat Enterprise. Despite the new organisational structure, Inmarsat says it does not intend to change its policy of distributing its services primarily through independent channel partners, consisting of its network of distribution partners and service providers. The company’s services are delivered through a global network of more than 400 distribution partners and service providers operating in 100 countries.
