The international satellite communications industry has elected Tracey Haslam, president of Harris CapRock Communications, to serve on the Global VSAT Forum’s (GVF) board of directors. The GVF Board leads the association as it continues to create greater awareness of the commercial, economic, political and technological advantages provided by satellite broadband and broadcasting solutions. The vote was held in conjunction with the GVF High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Roundtable London 2015: Game Changer or New Game event on 2 December, 2015, the seventh in an annual roundtable series that aims to drive dialogue around HTS technologies; services and network security; deployment ecosystems and user markets; and solutions engineering.
As a GVF member organization, Harris CapRock has demonstrated proficiency in one of the organization’s key priorities of building core competencies by strategically improving the skills and knowledge of technicians and operators. As a result of Haslam’s diligence towards training and certification, Harris CapRock has become the only company to meet the stringent standards set forth by the GVF to achieve Accredited Organization status for two consecutive years.
“GVF promotes higher standards of service, greater levels of market access, improved regulatory conditions and heightened awareness by the public and private sectors of the advantages afforded by state-of-the-art satellite-based fixed and mobile solutions,” said David Hartshorn, secretary general, GVF. “Haslam’s guidance of Harris CapRock to set new standards in areas she has defined as differentiators across the communications industry will bring a welcome vision to GVF, and we look forward to drawing upon her expertise.”
