KVH Industries named Vivian Quenet its new vice president of sales for Asia-Pacific.

Quenet, an 11-year veteran of the maritime satellite communications industry, will be based in KVH's Singapore office and lead the company's expansion efforts throughout Asia.

Before joining KVH, Quenet served as director of Asia-Pacific for mobile satellite communications provider Vizada, where he oversaw all operations for the company's office in Southeast Asia. Prior to joining Vizada, he was a corporate sales manager for Bouygues Telecom Enterprises, a GSM carrier.

Quenet holds a degree in marketing and international sales from the University of Toulon & Var in France and speaks fluent French, English and German.

"KVH is poised to capitalize on the Southeast Asian opportunity with our global mini-VSAT broadband network and the TracPhone V7 and V3 hardware. Vivian's impressive track record in international satellite communications sales, as well as his familiarity with the Southeast Asian maritime market, make him the ideal person to lead KVH's efforts in this region," said Brent Bruun, KVH vice president for satellite sales and business development, in a statement.
