Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications company OneWeb has strengthened its mobility team in the UK and USA with three new senior leadership appointments.

Jason Sperry joins OneWeb as Director, Business Aviation, based out of Melbourne, Florida. Sperry brings a wealth of experience from the IFC service provision perspective, including significant satellite provider insight spanning both GEO and LEO technologies. He is responsible for delivering fibre-like connectivity solutions to business jet owners, operators, and end users – passengers and crew alike.

Drew Brandy joins OneWeb as Director, Land Mobility, after 13-plus years with Inmarsat, latterly as Senior VP Maritime, progressing from VP Strategy and Development. Based out of London, Drew will be responsible for setting and executing OneWeb’s land mobility portfolio strategy, working closely with the mobility team members.

Stepping up from an initial consultancy role over the past 14 months, Nick Maynard becomes full-time Marketing Director (Mobility), based out of the UK. Maynard brings over 25 years’ relevant experience in marketing and communications working out of the UK and UAE, supporting several blue-chip aviation companies – in-house and with agencies OglivyOne and Carlson.

Ben Griffin, OneWeb VP Mobility Services, said: “I’m very pleased to be adding to my team with these three stellar professionals. Together we are working on some exciting strategies and partnerships that will disrupt the mobility connectivity market for years to come. We are focused on driving these forward and sharing our news over the next few months.”

OneWeb is ramping up its work to deliver reliable high-speed low-latency connectivity across all mobility platforms, including commercial and business aviation, land and marine. The company’s LEO constellation will have a network of over 600 satellites.
