Roger Tong has been tapped as the new executive director and CEO of Asia Satellite Telecommunications Holdings (AsiaSat) following the resignation of Andrew Jordan.

AsiaSat’s chairman, Gregory Zeluck, said, “On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Jordan for his service. We look forward to his continued contribution as senior advisor to the company. I would also like to welcome Dr. Tong, an industry veteran with extensive knowledge, experience and network of contacts across the satellite communications, broadcast and telecom industries who has served the company for more than 10 years to join the board. We are confident that he has the strategic vision, capability and experience to continue to build AsiaSat’s leadership in this rapidly changing environment and to steer the company to its next phase of growth.”
