De Clerck, who will be based in Newtec’s Singapore office, previously worked for global technology company Barco N.V. where he held various VP positions.
Newtec’s global chief commercial officer Thomas Van den Driessche says the appointment of De Clerck comes at a pivotal time for Newtec in the APAC region. “I have no doubt that he will lead the team to continued success.”
Van den Driessche says the appointment follows Newtec’s partnership with leading Asian players and several important customer wins – with all leading satellite operators, the majority of broadcasters, service providers and Satcom partners among customers served by Newtec in the Asia-Pacific region.
Van den Driessche points to the studies showing that Asia has been named as the second largest market for satellite capacity. “The rapidly growing mobility market, Asia’s continued digital transformation and expanding multiservice ecosystem will further add to Newtec’s growth in the region”.
