Eutelsat Communications has appointed Jean-Hubert Lenotte as its director of strategy. He succeeds Yohann Leroy, who has been appointed deputy chief technical officer and director of engineering.
Lenotte was most recently head of the consumer service line of McKinsey & Company in the global communications, media and technology practice.
Commenting on Lenotte’s appointment, Michel de Rosen, CEO of Eutelsat, said: “Jean-Hubert has acquired an exceptional wealth of knowledge and understanding of telecommunications and media markets during his career, helping companies across the full spectrum of the TMT sector to grow, from content creation and network management to consumer electronics. His 360 degree vision will be a great asset for Eutelsat at a juncture when satellites are well positioned to seize growth opportunities.”
