Satellite services provider Intelsat has appointed Grant Marais as its regional VP of Africa sales, effective 3 January 2013. Marais succeeds Jon Osler, who will join Intelsat’s Global Accounts team in Washington, D.C.

In his new position, Marais will be responsible for supporting the growth of Intelsat’s customers in the region, which includes leading telecommunications and wireless operators, network services providers, and DTH platform operators and broadcasters.

Intelsat provides these customers with critical communications infrastructure, including 23 satellites serving the region, and the Intelsat EpicNG high throughput satellite platform, which is expected to launch in 2015.

Marais joins Intelsat from Nokia in Dubai, where he served as GM of sales for the Pan-Middle East, Africa and the Commonwealth of Independent States. He also served in Uganda as chief commercial officer for Simba Telecom.
