Dan Zajicek, Gilat Satcom CEO

Gilat Satcom, a provider of satellite and fibre-based connectivity services in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, today announced that its CEO, Dan Zajicek, has been appointed to the board of one of Africa’s carriers, WIOCC.

Gilat Satcom Nigeria, a subsidiary of Gilat Satcom, was a founding shareholder in WIOCC, and it has always held a board-level position. The involvement of Gilat Satcom’s CEO and the company’s continuing investment in WIOCC reflects the ever-increasing demand from its customers for high-speed fibre connectivity in Africa.

Formed in 2007 and operating exclusively as a wholesaler, WIOCC is Africa’s carriers’ carrier utilizing more than 50 000km of terrestrial fibre to and from more than 400 locations across 30 Africa countries. It has a number of strategic investments in submarine cables, including EASSy, EIG and WACS.

“Providing broadband connectivity over fibre in Africa is now the fastest-growing part of our business and compliments our traditional satellite business. WIOCC has changed the face of telecoms in Africa; its fibre network enables us to provide operators and enterprises with reliable, affordable connectivity across the continent,” says Dan Zajicek, Gilat Satcom CEO.

“Gilat Satcom is a dynamic and innovative company which is constantly looking for ways to improve broadband services in Africa. We welcome Dan onboard and know that his experience and expertise will be a valuable asset for our team,” says Chris Wood, WIOCC CEO.
