Satellite Demand is Growing – Mike Kenneally, NewSat VP of Satellite Strategy

A communications specialist and information management expert, Kenneally has been with the satellite carrier for six years. He also worked at the Department of Defence, the Prime Minister’s Department and IBM. Under his supervision as technical auditor, the national census adopted spatial information systems in 1996 for the very first time.

They established a very effective business alliance to deliver these services. Dodo works with them but that relationship is managed by NewSat and is effectively invisible to me – the results have been near perfect. NewSat manages any and all issues and only refer back to me when issues move outside the boundaries of our contract. We have complex stakeholder requirements and I would recommend NewSat unreservedly as they have adapted to our unusual business model with ease. If an alliance is required between NewSat and another “service provider, NewSat can be completely trusted with that alliance and will ensure efficient and effective delivery.
Hugh Gregory, Director of the Department of Defence Cadet Policy Branch in Canberra
