Keith Hall, CEO, Discusses First Year After Sale of Globecomm

November 2014

Hauppauge, New York - (13 November 2014) - Since taking the helm as CEO of Globecomm Systems, Inc. after the company's acquisition by Wasserstein & Company in December 2013, Keith Hall has spent much of his time implementing a new strategy and direction. The strategy is primarily designed to leverage the technology and synergies available across the company's five vertical sectors and to retain Globecomm's legacy as the leading provider of problem-solving engineering solutions worldwide. In a new interview, Mr. Hall describes where the company is with this process and what remains to be done in 2015.

Among the highlights, Hall notes that the company is on plan and that he looks forward "to announcing some new deals in the coming quarters." He also reported that Globecomm is creating a super vertical that will expand its offering to multiple sectors in areas where the company's analysis has revealed sustained potential. The sectors of the new vertical include aerospace, maritime and resource extraction.

"We are now looking at how the products will perform as they make their way into the hands of our entire range of market verticals," Hall adds.

He also reinforced the company's commitment to the media and broadcast industry, which has continued to be lucrative and is undergoing significant changes, as well as his belief that the companies acquired by Globecomm over the past few years provide the type of synergy that leads to further development in areas he believes will grow quickly. These fast-growth areas include the "instant infrastructure" space, which Globecomm's successful mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) service continues to provide in parts of the world which need access to communications, but do not yet have the proper infrastructure to enable it.

The CEO also says that a concentration on M2M, and the company's rollout of an interactive video service targeted at the enterprise market, Tempo, are starting to hit their stride.
