Changing Places


Intellian appointed Søren Einshøj its new global chief strategy officer and president.

Based in Oslo, Norway, Einshøj will be part of the core leadership within Intellian. He has spent nearly 20 years in the marine communications industry.

"Understanding the needs of service providers and the demand for entertainment and communication in the maritime end-user market is essential for developing Intellian's value proposition," said Eric Sung, president and CEO of Intellian, in a statement.

"Søren will work with service providers and other strategic partners to consistently improve Intellian's innovative market standard, enabling access to any satellite network. He is an extremely disciplined businessman with a wealth of experience in our market and industry. In the short time he has worked with us, we have already developed and implemented key initiatives that will enable us to increase our offerings and continue to grow at an exponential rate."

In 2001, on behalf of Telenor (formerly Norwegian PTT), Einshøj founded Marlink, a merger between Telenor owners' maritime satellite communication unit and the acquired SAIT Communications SA, based in Belgium.

As CEO of the Marlink group until 2007, Einshøj positioned the company as the preferred satellite communication provider within the global maritime community.

Einshøj also brings experience from top management positions in computer manufacturing, as an entrepreneur and an independent management consultant, and as an army officer.

Einshøj has a bachelor's degree in economics and an executive M.B.A. in shipping and logistics from the Copenhagen (Denmark) Business School. He also has master disciplines in marketing planning and international business finance and business strategy.
