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.
