ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EchoStar Corp. (NASDAQ: SATS), a leading global satellite services provider and developer of hybrid video delivery technologies, today announced that SiriusXM Radio veteran executive Derek de Bastos has joined EchoStar Satellite Services, LLC, a subsidiary of EchoStar Corp., as Chief Technology Officer.

de Bastos will be responsible for the procurement, technical direction, and technical operations for EchoStar's satellite fleet and will manage a growing team responsible for systems engineering and program management. He will report to Anders Johnson, president of ESS.

"Derek has managed large-scale satellite systems from conception to in-orbit operation," said Johnson. "His knowledge and experience will make him a great addition to our executive ranks."
