Inmarsat Government, the leading provider of secure, global, mission-critical telecommunication solutions to the US public sector, has announced the appointment of Susan Miller as President and CEO. In this role, Miller will be responsible for the overall business strategy and direction for Inmarsat Government, a wholly-owned, independent subsidiary of Inmarsat, responsible for all direct US Government business.

Miller has over 20 years of senior executive leadership experience across a wide range of technologies that serve the US Government and commercial sectors. Prior to joining Inmarsat Government, Miller held leadership positions in the satellite and telecommunication industries, including MTN Satellite Communications, where she served as executive vice-president for strategy and corporate development; Spacenet Integrated Government Solutions, where she was CEO; and Intelsat General Corporation, where she held the position of president and chairman of the proxy board. Other well-known organisations Miller worked with include LightSquared, Lockheed Martin and Hughes Aircraft Corporation.

Peter Hadinger, President of Inmarsat’s US Government Business Unit, says: “We are delighted that Susan has agreed to join the proxy company. The appointment of Susan as President and CEO of Inmarsat Government reflects Inmarsat’s ongoing commitment to serving the US Government with seamless, agile and high-value services. Her expertise and deep knowledge of the market will be essential for the growth of Inmarsat Government and are an excellent complement to our strong base of direct partners.

“The importance of resilient high-speed commercial satellite communications continues to grow for the US Government customers, and I am pleased to join Inmarsat Government to help ensure government requirements are met well into the future,” says Miller. “With Global Xpress service on the horizon, this is an exciting time to join an organisation that has served government needs for over 33 years.”
