The Satellite Hall of Fame was introduced in 1987 to recognise the valuable
contributions of the visionaries and pioneers who have made possible the age
of satellite communications — individuals who have devoted their careers to
the advancement of technology and to helping build the political and
commercial foundations of the industry.

In its commendation praising the achievements of the President and CEO of SES,
SSPI notes that “since joining SES in 1995, Romain Bausch provided the
leadership that transformed SES from a regional satellite company offering
direct-to-home TV distribution in Europe to a global satellite operator
serving broadcasters, telcos, enterprise, and government customers. Under his
leadership, SES became one of the big “consolidators” in the FSS industry,
integrating among others Nordic Satellite AB, GE Americom and New Skies
Satellites, and also providing significant investment and support to O3b
Networks. He managed this expansion program while keeping SES on a solid
financial footing and took the company public in a successful IPO in 1998.
Romain Bausch is also Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of O3b Networks,
member of the Board of the European Satellite Operators’ Association (ESOA)
and a Director of Luxembourg’s Business Federation. In 2002, he was honoured
as Via Satellite’s Satellite Executive of the Year.”
