Yverdon, Switzerland – February 5, 2014 – ITC Global, a leading provider of satellite communications to remote and harsh environments announced today that it has opened new operations in Aberdeen, Scotland expanding its already strong global presence in over 40 countries. The new office, located at 15 Albert Street, Aberdeen will initially be composed of sales and engineering resources, with near term additions of technical support and a service depot for systems operating in the North Sea region.
Leading the U.K. office will be industry veteran Richard Elson, as Vice President of Sales & Business Development. Richard recently joined the company along with two other new members of the ITC Global team - Steve Allan, UK Sales Manager and Brian Henderson, Manager Sales Engineering EMEA. Richard, Steven and Brian are all formerly of Harris CapRock Communications having served in a variety of sales, business, and engineering roles, and they bring extensive expertise in remote communications solutions for offshore energy clients.
The new ITC Global office in the U.K. is part of a larger strategic investment to enhance the company’s ability to serve the emerging needs of its clients. The two year campaign has included a private equity recapitalization and three sizable acquisitions, dramatically expanding the firm’s global coverage and local presence across the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia. The investment has also enabled ITC Global to be the first to bring new satellite modem technologies to market, driving higher performance for critical network applications. The opening of the Aberdeen, Scotland office follows ITC Global’s expansion last month in another energy capital city, Houston, Texas, where the company has established headquarters for its Americas region operations.
Alexandre de Luca, Chief Commercial Officer and Managing Director for Europe Middle-East and Africa, said, “We are very excited to be expanding our presence in the U.K. We have been planning to open offices in Aberdeen for sometime, given its position as a major hub for the energy industry. With Richard and his new team joining the company, it was the perfect time to make the investment. The new operations will enable us to better serve our U.K. based clients both in the North Sea and around the world.”
