INTELSAT ANNOUNCES MAJOR ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES TO REFLECT NEW COMMERCIAL ORIENTATION

 INTELSAT ANNOUNCES MAJOR ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES
 TO REFLECT NEW COMMERCIAL ORIENTATION
 WASHINGTON, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The INTELSAT board of governors, meeting here March 5-11, today approved major organizational changes recommended by Director General Irving Goldstein to reflect a new, more commercial orientation for the company.
 The new organization for the Executive Organ, now called INTELSAT Management, is based on a structure with four vice presidents reporting to the director general:
 -- Executive vice president, Operations & Services -- John Hampton of Australia.
 -- Vice president & chief financial officer -- David Tudge of the United Kingdom.
 -- Vice president, Engineering & Research -- Pierre Madon of France.
 -- Vice president, Information & Administration -- to be filled.
 These four vice presidents replace a centralized management structure which had featured two deputy directors general. Internal realignment of functions within the INTELSAT Management are as follows:
 -- The executive vice president of Operations and Services is responsible for three activities that are key to INTELSAT's ability to respond to its customers: Operations, Marketing and External relations. The functions of these units are fully interdependent and managing them under a single senior officer is essential to achieving the market approach set forth in the INTELSAT Strategic Plan.
 -- The vice president and chief financial officer is responsible for the related activities of Finance, Accounting, Procurement and Headquarters Building Management. This functional grouping reflects the need to focus on financial concerns, particularly the development of policies and programs that better suit customers' and members' needs, and the continuing need to monitor and control costs.
 -- The vice president of Engineering and Research is responsible for these important technical activities, including the future planning of the organization's engineering and research programs, reporting directly to the director general.
 -- The vice president of Information and Administration will be responsible for Information Management, including computer and electronic data processing services, Conference Services and Language Services. In related staff functions, David Leive, general counsel; Dewey Arnold, director of Internal Audit; Jane Kinzie, director of Human Resources; as well as the director of Strategic Planning, currently a vacant position, will report directly to Goldstein.
 Goldstein's position will include the title of chief executive officer, in addition to that of director general, in keeping with the increasingly commercial nature of the company.
 "We are going to change the way we do business," promised Goldstein in announcing the board's actions. "These functional realignments have one overriding purpose -- to enable us to better serve our customers around the world, providing competitive, reliable, global communications unmatched by any other organization or medium," he concluded.
 With headquarters in Washington, INTELSAT is the international, commercial cooperative of 121 member nations that owns and operates the global communications satellite system used worldwide by 180 member and non-member countries, territories and dependencies for their international and, in many instances, domestic communications.
 The major provider of transoceanic telephone and television services, INTELSAT also offers via its 17-satellite global system such services as international video, teleconferencing, facsimile, data, telex and cable restoration.
