Andrew Browne Appointed CFO of SES
Global satellite operator SES has appointed Andrew Browne as chief financial officer (CFO) and member of its executive committee, replacing current CFO Mark Rigolle, who is taking up the position of chief executive officer (CEO) of satellite infrastructure start-up O3b Networks.
Browne, a well-known satellite industry veteran, was CFO of Intelsat from 1995 to 1998, where he was instrumental in building up the foundation for a new company that later became New Skies Satellites. He then served as CFO of that company from 1998 to 2008, including during the incorporation into the SES group when it was purchased in 2006 from private equity owners. Since then, Browne has served in advisory as well as non-executive directorship roles in a variety of companies. He will take up his position at SES at the beginning of April.
