Intelsat S.A. (OTC: INTEQ), operator of the world’s largest and most advanced integrated satellite and terrestrial network, announced today that Chief Executive Officer Stephen Spengler has decided to retire as CEO upon the Company’s emergence from its financial restructuring process and the naming of a successor. Until that time, Spengler will continue as CEO and lead Intelsat through the final stages of this process, ensuring a smooth transition.
“We are nearing the conclusion of our restructuring with enhanced financial strength and are ideally positioned to embark on an exciting new business strategy for the next generation of 5G network connectivity,” Spengler said. “This is the right moment to make my retirement plans clear so that work can begin on identifying a new leader for the long term.”

His deep understanding of our customers’ needs resulted in many years of commercial success. His steadfast stewardship of the Company as we undertook our financial restructuring has also been commendable. He has helped build the foundation for a strong future, and we are grateful.”
