VIDEO: Pete Hoene on the evolution of the commercial satellite industry

On March 2, 2015, Pete Hoene took over as the CEO of SES Government Services (SES GS), a global satellite solutions provider, where he previously served as the Corporate Vice President for Development.

Prior to this role, Hoene retired from the U.S. Air Force in 2010 following 30 years of service. In his last active duty position, Hoene served as the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Program Executive Officer for Command and Control, where he managed a portfolio of Joint and Coalition Command and Control and Information Sharing programs.

As a retired officer in the Air Force and a distinguished executive in the commercial satellite industry, Pete has witnessed – firsthand – the change and evolution that the industry has undergone over the past few decades. He’s witnessed the shifting relationship between the federal government and commercial satellite solution providers. He’s also been privy to the technological advancements that have shaped the industry, and will continue to do so into the future.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down for a video interview with Pete from the SES GS offices in Reston, VA. We used the opportunity to discuss Pete’s vision for the company now that he has taken over as CEO, his priorities for SES GS and what he predicts for the industry in the future.

Here is part one in a three-part video interview series with Pete Hoene – the new CEO of SES GS:

In part two of our three-part series, we ask Pete about an exciting new advancement in the commercial satellite industry – Middle Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite constellations – and how they could benefit the federal government.
