Media Broadcast Satellite GmbH, the teleport based in Usingen, near Frankfurt, Germany, has appointed Nev Ford as Director of Business Development for EMEA.
Ford has more than 20 years’ experience in the provision of global satellite solutions with additional expertise in the space sector, specifically In-Orbit Servicing and Earth Observation/ Satellite Imaging, plus background in Internet of Things (IoT) and Software as a Service (SaaS).
As Media Broadcast Satellite’s Director of Business Development for EMEA, Nev will be based out of the UK.
“I am thoroughly impressed with Media Broadcast Satellite’s facilities and their vision for the future. It became immediately obvious that we share the same passion for the industry and recognise the exciting directions in which we can steer the teleport together. The overall business strategy is already developing and we’ve begun to forge some industry leading relationships,” said Ford. “The teleport in Usingen really is industry leading and there is such
huge potential for growth on site. I actively encourage anyone interested in co-located infrastructure, TT&C, Remote Sensing or more traditional teleport and broadcast services to come and pay us a visit. You will find us to be customer-centric, future-focused, flexible and innovative.”

His vision for Media Broadcast Satellite is incredibly engaging and we believe will help cement our position as the industry leading teleport in Europe, perhaps beyond.” said Sven Sünberg, Managing Director, Media Broadcast Satellite. “His expertise and leadership in developing strategy will prove crucial in such a rapidly evolving industry.”
