The new office will allow Hellas Sat to increase the scope of its operations in South Africa, providing a new in-region, direct contact for sales and marketing while helping maintain its long-standing relationships within the South African telco industry.
Antonis Maniatis, who has more than a decade of experience in the South African telco industry, as well as holding an MSc in Satellite Communications, will manage the new office and act as the primary contact for the region. He will also be responsible for business development, as well as account management of the leading communication services and media companies operating in the region.
“The telco market in South Africa and the wider region is evolving at a rapid rate, with changing customer behavior putting increased demands on service providers,” said Maniatis. “In opening this new office, Hellas Sat has shown its commitment to helping those service providers meet the demands of their customers, as well as illustrating its desire to further its great relationships with the industry across the region.”
The new office follows the successful launch of the HS-3 satellite in June 2017, with which Hellas Sat secured additional capacity, along with superior coverage for the dynamic region of Sub-Saharan Africa. The new capacity of HS-3 will be complemented with cross-region connectivity solutions between Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa for both data and broadcasting services.
