KVH appoints new VP of global mobile broadband sales
KVH Industries (KVH) has appointed Mark Guthrie as Vice President, Global Mobile Broadband Sales. Guthrie will be a key part of KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network.
“There are many great growth opportunities for KVH in the marine market, especially with the mini-VSAT Broadband service and TracPhone systems,” he commented on his appointment. “This company is full of enthusiastic people, and that’s key. Nothing is impossible here – the most typical reaction to any challenge is ‘yes, we can do that for the customer.’ From sales and marketing to engineering, KVH is full of enthusiastic people, and I feel right at home already.”
Guthrie will be part of KVH’s next phase of development in satellite communications new product development, including the launch this year of new TracPhone V-IP series system and IP-MobileCast content delivery service. TracPhone V3-IP, V7-IP, and V11-IP systems use the new Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM), which enables the systems to receive and decode multicast content. Several user devices can access the multicast data stored on the onboard server, which the company sees as a timely solution for maritime operators looking to improve crew welfare in accordance with MLC-2006.
He joins KVH from widespread experience in the telecoms industry, including British Telecom, Europe Star, where he was responsible for European sales and marketing strategies and later at Verestar, where he led the VSAT managed services group for the EMEA region.
“I believe that Mark will provide significant contributions to the mobile broadband sales team and in turn will prove to be a valued asset for KVH,” commented Brent C. Bruun, executive vice president of KVH’s mobile broadband group.
