Catherine Melquist

MSUA is delighted to present an interview with:

Andrew Faiola
Director, Mobility Solutions, Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia-Pacific, Intelsat

This week's MSUA Member Interview is with Andrew Faiola, Director of Mobility Solutions for Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia-Pacific at Intelsat. This interview took place in April and is the final input in our recent series on the IoT market.  

CatherineAndrew since you’re living and working in London, I need to first ask you about the weather.  How is it today and are you seeing signs of Spring? 

AndrewOne of the great things about living in London is that no matter how the weather is, you can be sure it is just about to change.  We’ve had the warmest April day in 70 years, and are just about to receive a months’ worth of rain in one day.  There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing choices!

CatherineMoving forward, it was great seeing you at SAT18 and I especially enjoyed the panel you moderated, “IoT on the Road: Connected Consumer Vehicles, OTT, and the Self-Driving Car”, with panelists from Kymeta, Globalstar, Strategy Analytics and Aptiv. 
As Intelsat’s Director of Mobility Solutions for EMEAAP, does the Connected Car and IoT program fall under your remit?  What are your other priority areas of focus for the mobility business?
