Intelsat chairman to resign
By Brian Santo

Intelsat's board has elected Raymond Svider as chairman to replace Joseph Wright, who recently notified the company of his resignation, effective May 1.

Svider is a managing partner of BC Partners, Intelsat's majority shareholder.

Intelsat CEO David McGlade said: "Joe Wright has been a key figure in the success of the fixed satellite services industry. From his days on the PanAmSat board, through his distinguished service as PanAmSat's CEO, to the last two years as Intelsat's chairman, he has been a major force in the positive changes that have shaped our sector. Joe's valuable insights as we combined Intelsat and PanAmSat, particularly with respect to our government business, allowed Intelsat to quickly obtain the benefits of our 'one company' operating structure."
