MIDDLETOWN, R.I., March 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:KVHI) is pleased to name Mr. Vivian Quenet as its new vice president of sales, Asia-Pacific. Mr. Quenet, an 11-year veteran of the maritime satellite communications industry, will be based in KVH's Singapore office and lead the company's expansion efforts throughout Asia, focusing on the global mini-VSAT Broadband SM network and KVH's TracPhone ® V7 and V3 antennas.
"The global shipping industry is moving swiftly to adopt VSAT communications, and KVH and the mini-VSAT Broadband network offer more value and innovation than any other solution on the market. I am excited to join a company that brings such a truly disruptive new approach to satellite communications for the maritime sector, especially within the exciting Asian market. Singapore serves as one of the world's pre-eminent commercial shipping hubs and plays host to a diverse group of international maritime operators. In addition, the region is home to more than two-thirds of the world's 20 busiest seaports, and every vessel that comes through those ports needs high-quality onboard communications," explains Mr. Quenet. "I look forward to working with the KVH team, our strategic technology partners, and our outstanding network of maritime electronics professionals around the world to seize this opportunity and make KVH the leading choice for SATCOM throughout southeast Asia."
Before joining KVH, Mr. Quenet served as director, Asia-Pacific for mobile satellite communications provider Vizada, where he oversaw all operations for the company's office in southeast Asia. Over the course of 10 years with that company, Mr. Quenet worked to bring satellite communications services to commercial mariners in several regions, including France, Africa, the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Norway, and Sweden, as well as southeast Asia. Prior to his tenure at Vizada, he worked as a corporate sales manager for Bouygues Telecom Enterprises, a GSM carrier.
