Iridium Satellite LLC, the operator of a fleet of 77 LEO satellites and the only global provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, named Matthew Desch as its new CEO.

According to Associated Press, Mr. Desch would like to focus on offering additional data services, the segment growing 50% during the last year. He plans to introduce new data offerings during the next 12 years.

It would be interesting to oversee these developments, as Iridium will have to introduce some new equipment to achieve these objectives. It’s been lately getting hotter and hotter in this business! 🙂
