Last Wednesday, January 25th, Rotarian Sterling Hoffman introduced the speaker David (Dave) A. Micha, President of Intelsat General Communications (IGC), a Business Unit of the Intelsat Corporation.   As the foundational architects of satellite technology, Intelsat operates the largest, most advanced satellite fleet and connectivity infrastructure in the world.  In this role since February 2021, Mr. Micha is involved in all aspects of the business including Strategy, Business Development, Customer Relationships, M&A, P&L and Operations.

Mr. Micha has spent his entire thirty-six-year career in the Aerospace and Defense industry, including twenty-three years at L3Harris and, prior to that, thirteen years at Lockheed Martin.  Prior to joining Intelsat, Mr. Micha was the Chief Operating Officer for the L3Harris Integrated Mission Systems Segment and, prior to that, served as the Sector President for L3 Technologies Advanced Communications Sector. Mr. Micha also led the Maritime Sector and Space Sector for L3 Technologies.  While at Lockheed Martin, Mr. Micha worked in various functions, including Program Management, Operations and Finance supporting the DoD, Intelligence Community and International partners.
 
At base, Intelsat provides connectivity through satellite-based communications.  Its 52 satellites cover 99% of the Earth’s surface in geosynchronous orbit.  These satellites connect to 62 teleporters located around the world.  Intelsat carries about 1,500 terabytes of data every day.  Intelsat supports inflight connectivity to 21 airlines, is the largest distributor of broadcast television, and provides mission critical connectivity to governments for military and other purposes.  Intelsat also provides, on a pro bono basis, connectivity for disaster relief efforts. 

Our Rotary Club is fortunate to have so many members with wonderful contacts such that we are able to attract a wide variety of newsworthy, sought-after speakers! The diversity of our speakers reflects the diverse interests of our members.
