Chairman and CEO    
Mr. David McGlade

Intelsat Chairman and CEO David McGlade heads the world’s leading provider of satellite services, with operations that include a global network of commercial communications satellites and terrestrial infrastructure serving over 200 countries and territories. Mr. McGlade is a 30-year telecommunications and media industry veteran with experience in cable TV, broadband and wireless. At Intelsat, Mr. McGlade is focused on continuously improving operations and on creating new revenue growth through enhanced communications service offerings for Intelsat’s customers in the media, broadband, mobility and government/military sectors.

 Mr. McGlade joined Intelsat in April 2005, following the Company’s acquisition by a group of private equity firms, collectively named Intelsat Holdings. During his tenure at Intelsat, Mr. McGlade led the Company’s 2006 acquisition of PanAmSat, a $6.4 billion transaction which created the industry’s largest satellite operator with leading positions in each of the customer sectors served by the Company.

This acquisition, and the subsequent highly successful integration, resulted in an attractive valuation expansion, reflected in the sale of Intelsat in February 2008 to a consortium of investors led by BC Partners. The acquisition transaction valued Intelsat at an enterprise value of $16.4 billion.

 Prior to joining Intelsat, he served as Chief Executive Officer of O2 UK (previously BT Cellnet) since October 2000. Mr. McGlade has extensive experience bringing new technologies and converged services to businesses and other customers. As President, West Region, Sprint PCS, he launched the first CDMA network outside of Asia.

 Mr. McGlade is a non-executive board member of Skyworks Solutions, and is Chairman of Intelsat. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Rutgers University.
