Isaac Angel has become the new chairman of the board of Gilat Satellite Networks, according to the company’s announcements. Angel will be substituting Dov Baharov, who left the office for retirement after leading the board for seven years. Angel was the chief executive of Ormat Technologies Inc., which supplies renewable power and energy alternatives. Angel served the company for seven years as an officer and director. Initially, the director was an executive at LeadCom Integrated Solutions, VeriFone, and Lipman Electronic Engineering. The executive had proved his leadership skills in these companies before Gilat Satellite Networks selected him to lead the company.

Angel stated that Gilat has stood out as an enterprise with over three decades of business operations and customer base. This experience has taught the company to be innovative and identify skilled employees to place the company in a growth position. He explained that he hopes to do his best for the company to propel it to greater feats.

The company spokesperson stated that they are ready to dispatch the resources that will help the new chief executive deliver the best services for the company’s customers. Additionally, the other executives are waiting for the new chief to start implementing the necessary strategies. The shareholders are expecting to witness their equity serving the company and ensuring that it remains a going concern. Various projects that the previous executive was overseeing will be keenly monitored for progress.

The first business announcement made by the new chief executive involved the breakthrough that the company’s subsidiary, Wavestream, developed. The subsidiary assembled a high-power transceiver called Aerostream 40Ku.

This device is advanced with the most vital innovation, and Global Eagle Entertainment (Global Eagle) tried and confirmed its potential in its operations. The transceiver has already received its certification under the DO-160G authorization and classification. The company will be commercializing the product for utilization in commercial aircraft. This move will be initiated in the period ending mid this year. The device will help keep the company on the global map for innovations in the technology space.

The new chief has the task of ensuring that this project is successful and that the product receives the attention it deserves. The company will be keen to work with the new director to meet the company’s objectives. Angel is ready to lead the company on more exploits that it should have made, which will take it towards the goals that it had set during its establishment. Hopefully, the new leader will be compatible with the company for efficiency.
