Satellite systems integrator, manufacturer and distributor Hiltron Communications has announced a new addition to its management team with the appointment of Jean-Luc George van Eeckhoutte as Sales Manager for the EMEA region. He brings nearly 20 years of experience to the role and was most recently employed by RF technology company Spinner GmbH.
“Jean-Luc has an excellent track record of achievement in the satcom sector, combining a good understanding of the technology with proven skills in sales and business management,” comments Hiltron Managing Director Antonio Monteverde. “He joins us at a significant time in the company’s development as we broaden our customer base from our primary focus on Europe.”
“It is a great pleasure to be joining a company with the strong reputation Hiltron has achieved both as a satcom equipment manufacturer and systems integrator,” says Jean-Luc George van Eeckhoutte. “The extensive Hiltron product catalogue includes long-established products such as the highly respected HMAM family of motorised antenna mounts plus the glue equipment used at the core of many communication systems. I hope to build on that success.”
Following his early years in defence electronics, Jean-Luc George van Eeckhoutte joined Satlynx in 2001, where he was active in network operations and later as Solutions Architecture Manager. From there he advanced through engineering roles at Siemens Space and Newtec to WORK Microwave, where was Director of Business Development/Regional Sales Director from 2014 to 2018.
