To accommodate increased customer demand for
video services, Intelsat has appointed Doug Triblehorn and Jean-Philippe
Gillet to head regional sales efforts for the company’s Media and
Entertainment Business Unit in Asia and in Europe, Africa and the Middle
East, respectively. Intelsat’s “Video Business Unit” has recently been
renamed the “Media and Entertainment Business Unit” in order to better
represent its function in providing services to customers.

Mr. Triblehorn, now Regional Vice President Asia Pacific for Intelsat’s
Media & Entertainment Business Unit, is responsible for leading and managing
sales activities in the region to position Intelsat strongly in the
marketplace and achieve growth objectives and profitability. Additionally,
he will ensure the development, implementation, monitoring and reporting on
detailed segment account management strategies, including Asia-Pacific
regional, country and customer-specific plans.

Prior to joining Intelsat, Mr. Triblehorn served as CEO, GlobeCast Asia Pte.
Ltd. (Singapore), where he was principally responsible for implementing the
structure, strategy and business development for GlobeCast’s interests in
Asia and overseeing all operations, sales, marketing, financial and other
aspects of the company.

Mr. Gillet, now Regional Vice President, Europe, Africa and the Middle East
for Intelsat’s Media & Entertainment Business Unit, is responsible for the
direction of overall development and execution of effective sales/customer
service strategies for existing and potential customers. Additionally, he
is in charge of overall customer relationship management and development of
new business in the regions.

Mr. Gillet comes to Intelsat from GlobeCast North America. Most recently,
he served as Vice President of International Sales where he managed the
strategy, development and sale of broadcast video services to all
international customers. Prior to that position at Globecast, he spent time
as the company’s Director of Sales for Europe and the Middle East.

“Intelsat is bringing in knowledgeable key industry executives like Mr.
Triblehorn and Mr. Gillet because we are committed to the growth of our
