Middle East satellite operator YahSat has named Masood M Sharif Mahmood as its new CEO.

Masood, who was appointed as deputy CEO in June last year, will replace Tareq Abdel Raheem Al Hosani, who is joining the YahSat board and will continue to play a role in the company’s strategic direction.

Jassem Mohammed Al Zaabi, Yahsat chairman said: “Tareq played a key role building Yahsat into a world class satellite communication organisation. Under his guidance and direction Yahsat has gained industry recognition and continues to grow on both a local and international level. I wish Masood the best of luck in his new roles and have 100% confidence that he will lead Yahsat to further success.”
