Woodbury has joined the company as Director of Government Systems, a new position. He will report to Bradford Briggs, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. Woodbury has sixteen years of experience in commercial telecommunications. After thirty years in Navy communications, he began his civilian career in 1987 with GTE Government Systems. As Manager, Navy Systems, in Chesapeake, Va., he was GTE Program Manager for the first fully encrypted ship/shore/ship Ku band commercial satellite video teleconference, between the USS George Washington (CVN73) at sea, the Commander-in-Chief of the Atlantic Fleet in Norfolk, and the Space and Electronic Warfare Directorate in the Pentagon.

He has also held positions of responsibility with Sprint Government Systems, Teleport Communications Group, AT&T Government Markets, and Analytical Graphics. During his tenure with Sprint, Mr. Woodbury was the Senior Navy Account Manager, initiating the SailorFON program which provided men and women aboard ships at sea with the opportunity to place telephone calls through commercial satellites anywhere their ship was deployed. “John Woodbury has in-depth experience in the government marketplace, which is a market we wish to pursue, and he has nearly two decades of experience in the communications industry generally,” said Mr. Kagan. “He is a valuable addition to our leadership team.”
