AsiaSat CEO Andrew Jordan has resigned and has been replaced by Roger Tong, as of yesterday.
AsiaSat said that Jordan, who has been CEO for a year and a half, will serve as senior adviser to the Hong Kong-based satellite operator until October 31.
Prior to becoming CEO, Tong was VP, engineering and operations and chief technical officer of AsiaSat, and has led various satellite and teleport programmes since joining AsiaSat in 2008. Before that, he was a technical consultant to Telesat Canada.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Jordan for his service. We look forward to his continued contribution as Senior Advisor to the Company,” said AsiaSat chairman Gregory Zeluck.
“I would also like to welcome Dr Tong, an industry veteran with extensive knowledge, experience and network of contacts across the satellite communications, broadcast and telecom industries who has served the Company for more than 10 years to join the board. We are confident that he has the strategic vision, capability and experience to continue to build AsiaSat’s leadership in this rapidly changing environment and to steer the company to its next phase of growth.”
