Hemingway served as CMO of O3b Networks before joining SES as Executive Vice President of Product, Marketing & Strategy of SES Networks.
SES has named John-Paul Hemingway as Chief Strategy and Product Officer, underscoring SESs commitment to ideate, build and deliver the services and solutions that create the most value for SES customers and partners, as well as their end-users.
Hemingway is charged with translating SES’s corporate vision into strategic action for the company’s networks and video markets including its target applications, strategic partnerships, portfolio of solutions, and the space and network assets required to deliver them. The newly-created function brings together the Corporate Strategy, Product, Commercial Operations, Fleet Development, Innovation and Marketing & Communications teams, and is part of SESs drive to be the customer-centric, product-led organisation in the industry.
With Hemingways appointment as CSPO, SES is eliminating the role of SES Networks CEO while retaining the focus on its video and networks businesses. The resulting organisation is flatter, leaner and more customer-oriented, with sales reporting directly to the CEO of SES.
Steve Collar, CEO of SES, said: “The pace of innovation and change is unprecedented in our space and having been a leader in the industry for over 35 years, we are putting in place the vision and focus to ensure that we will lead for the next 35. 2022 is a pivotal year for SES as we launch the infrastructure that will grow and develop our business for the next decade. JP at the helm of our growth strategy and as a partner to our sales teams will be an integral part of our success.”
