Chief Executive Officer
As ITC Global’s Chief Executive Officer, Ian Dawkins drives the strategic direction and growth for the organization, which became a subsidiary of ITC GLOBAL Corporation in 2015. As part of ITC GLOBAL’s mobility communications business, ITC Global provides end-to-end satellite communications to energy, mining, and maritime companies that operate in remote and harsh environments.
Ian has worked in the Aviation and Telecommunications Services industries for more than 30 years, where he spent much of his time supporting strategic negotiations and partnerships with customers, suppliers, and government bodies. Prior to joining ITC Global, Ian served as CEO for SITAOnAir, which provides connectivity solutions to the air travel industry. While there, he successfully reversed a failing joint venture.
Ian spent 23 years at Airbus where he held numerous roles with increasing levels of responsibility. He led Airbus’ program for the A320 family — which is recognized worldwide as the benchmark, single-aisle jetliner product line — and then drove the Future Programs and Projects organization which launched a number of new programs.
He graduated from The Open University with an Honors Degree in Design and Technology, and he also holds a Diploma in System Practices. He has lectured at Warwick and Bristol Universities on managing complex projects and is a Cranfield University Fellow in Aerospace Manufacturing Management.
