SES board of directors appoints three new members
The board of directors at SES has appointed Steve Collar, John Purvis and Evie Roos as new members of its Executive Committee. Steve Collar will join in his current role as CEO of O3b Networks, John Purvis as Chief Legal Officer and Evie Roos as Chief Human Resources Officer. Like the four current Executive Committee members, the three top executives will report to the President and CEO of SES, Karim Michel Sabbagh.
“As CEO of O3b Networks since 2011, Steve has played a central role in driving the company’s extremely successful development and in aligning it with our data business since its full acquisition by SES last year,” said Romain Bausch, Chairman of the Board. “Both John and Evie have been Executive Committee participants for several years and will continue to provide strong leadership on a wide array of strategic and organisational topics. The extension of our Executive Committee reflects the growth of our business and the focus on clearly distinct and dynamically growing markets.”
