Speedcast Announces Executive Management Changes

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

November 28, 2017

Speedcast International Limited has announced two changes to its executive management team: Keith Johnson will become chief operating officer, and Erwan Emilian will lead the Enterprise & Emerging Markets division.
 
Johnson, currently EVP of Speedcast’s Energy Division, will take over for David Kagan as chief operating officer, while also keeping his existing Energy Division responsibilities. Kagan leave Speedcast in early December for personal reasons, but will remain as an advisor to the CEO on a limited-time basis.
 
Johnson joined Speedcast in 2014 after spending over 20 years at Harris CapRock Communications, where he held numerous senior operational roles, including heading global operations and business unit leadership roles. As part of the transition, the information technology, digitalization, supply chain, QHSE and facilities functions formerly under the COO will move under a newly created CIO role, which is under recruitment. The changes are effective December 1.
 
Emilian has joined Speedcast to lead the Enterprise & Emerging Markets division. Emilian comes to Speedcast from IEC Telecom Group, where he served for 10 years as CEO. Prior to this, Emilian held executive positions at several high-tech startups and Fortune 500 companies. He replaces Andrew Burdall who left the company to pursue another opportunity.
