Signalhorn, a German provider of global network services and communications solutions using terrestrial, satellite and wireless technologies, has appointed Alexander Müller-Gastell as its president and chief operating officer (COO).

Müller-Gastell will report to Robert Kubbernus, CEO and chairman of Signalhorn.

“Alexander’s enthusiasm for this new opportunity and his drive for success plus discipline demonstrate the necessary spirit from the top down into the organisation to accelerate Signalhorn’s future success,” said Kubbernus. “This move allows me to more closely work with our customers, sales efforts and strategic growth plans.”

Müller-Gastell joined Signalhorn (formerly called GE Satcom/Satlynx) in May 2013 as chief financial officer. In his new role, he will direct and control Signalhorn’s daily operational business and give strategic guidance and direction to ensure that the company’s objectives and goals are achieved.
