Provider of satellite communications to remote and harsh environments, ITC Global, says it has appointed industry veteran Ashok Rao to open new operations in Singapore, and expand its business across Asia.

The new Singapore office extends ITC Global's existing presence in Asia Pacific, which is headquartered in Perth, Australia, by placing additional facilities and personnel closer to customers in the offshore energy and commercial maritime markets.  The new office will initially provide sales, engineering and customer support resources, with near term additions in field operations.

ITC adds that leading the new Singapore office and serving as Director of Asia Development for ITC Global is Ashok Rao.  Ashok recently joined the company after serving five years as IT Business Leader for EMAS, a subsidiary of the ERZA Group, which provides specialised marine services to the oil and gas industry with a fleet of 60 offshore support vessels.  Prior to EMAS, Ashok spent 30 years in various senior level roles with Schlumberger, the world's largest oil field services organization.

Chris Hill, Chief Technology Officer and Managing Director for Asia Pacific said, "We are very excited to be establishing ITC Global offices in Singapore.  As a major hub for both the energy and maritime industries, the new offices enable us to be closer to our clients' operations.  And with Ashok's leadership and extensive experience on both the supplier and end-user side of remote communications, our customers will benefit from a team that truly understands their unique requirements."
